That is a fine looking GF- clean and simple and really nice frame geometry.

Mind you I would say that :roll:


A bit like a bargain basement version of your (very cool) Fisher, Gazz. Is it the one mentioned in your sig?

It is the very same, however at least you could use your bike offroad, my frame has been repaired at some stage in it's life so it is now a road only bike :evil:

I think we have the same potholes in scotland- small world eh!?

lol. I don't know about that - just yesterday I saw a pothole that you would struggle to climb out of. Riding the suburban streets at night here is as good as offroad frankly!. Much worse than Welsh potholes!. And don't even start me on Boston drivers....

I can only cycle back from work as its at the top of a hill that crosses 4 areas of Glasgow,so if i get a lift in the van the bike comes too
i can basically freewheel for 30 mins going home :D

Finished vitus futural. Polished but not too polished aluminum. Brahma mountain bike bars and 42 x 16.

It does the damage to work and back.

Sure is, those lines are the light warping behind even though it is standing still.
