Too far away for me to get one (if there are any left- I saw the group sale when it first came up on this site)... shipping to Australia would be too much to contemplate.

Funny thing is that just after I saw the thread I spotted one of these (the same colour even) locked up just out side where I work!

They are HOOOOOOOJ :shock:

How fast did Shimano expect you to be going to need to grab a handfull of brake! I remember an old Raleigh Amazon I had with 100LX had 4 finger levers :wink:

Nice bike BTW, 'tis very clean :shock:
