Wonderful, looks so bright and just right.
Will be getting my Pathfinder out over the weekend to go on Turbo Trainer Duty which is currently being handled by my Sorcerer.
If you are after a set of the Deore LX Cantis I have a set in the garage that are going spare and have Aztec blocks fitted and don't want much for them.

Whilst I do like the Britishness of the muddy foxes and have to say in a manly way, that bear valley is a very beautifull bike and has my fullest attention

i had one exactly the same!!!! :lol: except mine was a massive 22" frame!!! and i was only about 5ft 8" at the time!!!! i still rode it loads, such a nice bike to ride, but i later sold it to a guy who was 6 ft 5" and it fitted him perfectly! However i'd swapped all the groupset onto my 18" 1991 Cannondale SM500 and put the Suntour X1 groupset onto the MFCM.

Look forward to seeing yours back on the trails!!! Great find. 8)
