Hi,
just want to share,what I bought for a new built for my friends mum as a commuter bike :D
She is very lucky as I found a nice piece of history in a fantastic condition.
It will be build with ordinary mix of components Shimano LX,XT...
I ve got a pair of Spengle for my future special built, so I just tried, how it will look on this frame :wink:

That looks lovely. Just saw a nice, yellow, p-bone adorning M900 on ebay only the other day:-)...

Looks terrific with the wheels. Nice skills!

Nice surprise as I scrolled down. I didnt expect Yellow Spengles.
I am fond of the level top tubed diamond frame 'dales, you don't see many about, shame they ditched the Pepperoni fork imo.

Very nice! Had one in mint condition and loved it.

Don't think I would use the Spengle's. Ruins the yellow from the frame IMHO.

Had to revive this thread...My brother has one of these in his shed, that I gave him in 1999.

What is the best way of asking for it back?
