Not many of these around, especially still with vibrant flouro decor

A proper bitsa build, wheels from the tip - LX on Weinmann/ Bontrager BC1

Exage trail chainset polished up with Mountain LX rings

Mountain LX shifter/ lever combo

XT front mech DX rear

Tioga stem/ bar combo left over from the Harry Quinn...

The ride is very good, theres a proper steel twang going on. I am led to believe these are 531 frames.

Hope you like it!

Poor Form LGF,

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... p;t=248883

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... e#p1878231

I could have coped with fronting the postage on a Karma Bike and never seeing it again.

Less so the lack of even a thank you/acknowledgement it ever arrived....

enjoy your ride.

well, no, not really, its been built up - the fact that I forgot where it came from is weak on my my part - have a belated 'thank you' - you can always have it back, its built and ready to go!
