...853 was 98/99, 2000 was Scandium - I have both.

Well actually one is a Kiluea at the moment, the 98 Explosif is just a newly powder coated frame wearing naught but a Raceface BB. I have a shoulder injury which is detracting me from the build process for the time being - that and not concentrating on one bike at a time!

Eventually I will posting 'yet another' '91 Cro-Mega LX, my '98 853 Explosif, 2000 Scandium Explosif and my other half's Stumpjumper (which will probably upset a few purists as it's going to be a bit 'gurly!').

As I only have the front Maguras to go on the Cro-Mega that'll most likely be up first?

In the meantime I'm trawling through the site wondering if I dare put them up here next to the amazing concours examples that get the most attention?

My '97 Kilauea in it's current guise, complete with 52-tooth Ultegra chainset for when I wanted to keep up with the Cambridge Uni Roadies!

I'll post some pix in Readers Bikes soon...

...and my Retro 'style' 2000 Explosif (sans grips at mo as I've only just changed the shifters). Just weighed in at 24lb, quite pleased with that as I knew it was light... :D
