whilst i was visiting my local bike shop (paying towards my first decent road bike).a gentleman came in with said bike for a service.

all i can say is what a lovely bike it is :D

have never seen one in the flesh before,it looked stunning 8) with it's orange/yellow swirly paint job and original (i think) manitou forks.it was also resplendent in first gen xtr and had lovely hope hubs/ritchey brakes/mavic headset.

all in all it was lovely :D (can you tell i'm slightly jealous :wink:

it's prestige tubes were nearly as skinny as my duster's are :shock:
