Fantastic bike. Got me going all misty eyed over my first MTB, a 90 Palisades trail. Inspiration to relive my youth I think!

So the Team got a proper outing at the mud of Mayhem! And it gave me a better lap time that the full suss I used for the second lap!

Loving it more and more each day...got an Honoury mention in the Mayhem bike judging line up and I was very pleased at how it rode too!

Fantastic doug.

You look super pleased!

It is mountain bike used on mountains and that, brings a lickle tear my my eye :wink: cantis would have been a benefit in that mud. V brakes would have been a nightmare. the less said the better about roller-cam brakes. :)

Hi wook.

Just a decal question. I can only assume you hav'nt lacquered over the decals you applied. so, have the decals stood up to weather, filth and grime thus far?

wes-side!

Hey Marc...the headtube decal took a few attempts to get it to stay put! The only other ones I replaced on the frame were the flag and the "race proven" on the seat stay and they have both stayed put! The fork decals have stuck well as have the ones on the stem. The Zolatone finish is not the easiest for decals to adhere to but so far so good!

Little update...after my modern tubeless bike got a slash in the tyre I ended up riding the Team on a recent Purbecks ride again....still have a soft spot for it even though it rattles my bones on the bumpy downhills!
