What's up today?

I've fixed the  (tiny) crack.

I'm still waiting for the black Syncros stem  and the  NOS pair of Tioga  Psycho Edge... it shoulb be here on friday :xmas-wink:

I hope everything is gonna be (almost) ready this week-end 8)

Actually, when I've bought the Manitou HT new in 96, I had a Mach 5 SX.
I've always loved the Mag 21 but never had one :(
Today, 17 years later, I want my Mag 21 :wink: . IMO it looks more "vintage" than the the Manitou, it's also a myth in the MTB history :mrgreen:
And, as merckx told: it's a bit "cheeky" :mrgreen:
