I won this on ebay last week and im really impressed :D I bought one last year but it was way too small so with a bit of a wait this turned up,
it was the long chain stayed frames that I longed for when I was a youth my teacher had an early one in blue, m500 I think? anyway this is a keeper and will develop over time but for now its dressed like this,

at last
Image

mmm 96 judy xc's :?
Image

the last of the long stay's
Image

shiny
Image

turquoise and teal fade
Image

back on it's feet
Image

lots of champagne, I can see a black theme rather than silver
Image

I will be using a mixture of xc pro/ltd for this build, im not over keen on the forks and have some 94 manitou comp's that would be more in with the build,
Lee.

congratulations :D

Very, very nice bike, and a cool color combination too........

A nice Pepperoni fork should also look very cool, but for off road use this is probably the better choice, i use my Cannondale's mostly on tarmac.



Good luck with the bike.............. 8)

I rode this at the national ride this weekend and I really enjoyed it, it's very nimble and stable at speed, only thing that went wrong was a snapped spoke, after the ride it was in with a chance of bikeoftheride oh well maybe next time,

just want an xc pro front mech and a champagne flavour sear post,
Lee.

Niiice. Looks lovely, not had a long stay M series myself..yet :)

Nifty looking barends and that paint is lovely. Think the stem is very nice looking too, although I'm not keen on the Brooks but I guess that is a choice based on 'comfort' not aesthetics? :) Function over form is more important IMO.

Looks like a sharp ride

Hi mate cheers for the positive words, the barends are mountain goat and the saddle is for comfort, I should get a display saddle as these brooks do look a bit bulky, cheers,
