The latest addition to the family (so much for resolving no more bikes this year, didn't even last two weeks!), rode very tidily through the slop today. Apologies for very poor photos, it was pretty grim outside when I took them.

Build is:
- IF Steel Deluxe ss frame and 'No Travel' forks
- Bontrager ceramics on King hubs with King Kog
- XT cranks
- SRAM v brakes with XT levers
- Thomson bars and stem
- Syncros bars
- Flite saddle

Bless eBay!

I'm glad I could help you with your purchase (so to speak!).

Looks very good.

Not sure of year Al, is that given away by the frame number?


Oh, and the 'blemish' on the top tube is to hide an 6 inch long scrape, looks like the previous owner leant it against something and it took the top coat of paint off

Hi Ed, the scrape would look better i think!

Its a bit like covering up a pimple on your nose with a hidious halloween mask and then smearing the mask with poo! :lol:

Thats not going over the top is it Ed? If you want some stickers for your top tube i will send you some. pm me.

Cheers,Al
