Hi Hope No one minds, But I thought I would post some pics of My M-trax after a day spent Cleaning and Polishing, and stripping of the Left over Decals. I think it has cleaned up Pretty good really, all considered I am sure I removed 10 years of Muc and grime.
Greased everything I could grease. bearings are in great Condition so another few quid saved as are the cables, Will be getting a new chain I think. Anyway thanks for all your comments on Previous Post,s great advice and help cheers
for that.
Rich

Neat looking colour scheme. Didn't like the labels or were they falling apart?

Those frames were pretty light, if a little flexy. Deserves better comonents imo.
Looks good though.

I am a little concerned By the comment of a little heat can destroy the bonding, surly keeping in a shed etc Is not a problem, I have heard about the odd one coming undone near the seat tube and BB shell, but all looks good to me, I guess I will just have to wait and keep fingers crossed.

I know most people do not like this model as it is the K2 Tubing and people say it is a cheap model, but I think it will make a perfect touring bike for me, so I m happy with my £50 purchase

Has anyone else heard about the frames becoming unbonded?????
