Was this from ebay? If so I was tempted to bid but glad you got it as it'd ended up as a donor bike for me :oops:

One mans donor bike, is another's dream bike. You should see some of the bikes that get left out for the local metal collectors :shock: I managed to grab one from a scrap man the other day. It was a giant had magura hs11's stx rc shifters lx rear mech had those bits off it put some cheapy bits on it and sold it for £30 :)
