I’ve got this bike from the original owner. He had it stacked away on the attic, warm and dry. The former owner was very kind to the bike. It was very clean and hardly used. One thing… the crank has had a bang and is not straight anymore. It uses the whole width of the front derailleur… so there's some work to do..

The bike was almost original, except for the rear tyre. GT-Steve helped me with another original tyre, Tioga Farmer John Nephew… Thanks again good man!

I've replaced the DX STI for DX thumbies. I really like those thumbies :D

Today the postman arrived with a Girvin Flexstem, Fluo-yellow. Let me see if it's any good on this bike. I want to replace the grips anyway...

Cheers,
Will

My first ever mtb, so a massive soft spot for these.

I've got one in my garage right now, and I thought it was stunning, but yours is just mint.... Lovely. 8)

Happy to help such a good cause with the tyre.. :D
