not what someone thinks though :lol: " I think you've set yourself up as quite an easy target for criticism. For example, your Blizzard doesn't look at all right with fancy red cables. A Blizzard is supposed to be a tough-looking bike, not a pretty-pretty bike. It certainly doesn't look 'spot on' and 'just like it came from bike shop I worked in in the nineties'. Just look at the catalogue picture, or any other photo of a 95 Blizzard."

each to their own I say :wink:

Built as a `Rider ` so not exactly as the catalog but certainly all period correct I like to think of her as the evil twin to my `92

A more recent pic showing the Black Pauls Motolita V brakes
I have since had to swap chainsets for a red Ano race face with 110 bcd silver rings ( Ritcheys) as my compact middle ring wore out and I couldnt find a replacement.
The bike is also running a freshly build wheelset of XTR silver hubs ( rare `95 only ) on Nos Mavic rims built by Mercian Cycles for me.

Bent the bugger on a ride at Cannock Chase
It's now replaced with a 27.0 Syncros jobbie.
Well spotted though :wink:
