Ohhh. That's nice.

Agreed about keeping the Mint Sauce stickers -They're part of its life after all 8)

I couldn't of watched THAT on Ebay without wanting it and bidding on it. Gorgeous.

Sooooo gutted I missed this... I slammed in £281 at the last second only to be pipped at the nose by Tony :oops:

Following this thread closely as its such a superb bike and especially rare in the lesser chosen jade green. But Tony, can you please carry out one request..... get those Peps back on it 8)

Ok peps going on this week hopefully, also would xt V's be sacrilege as the stock Lx cantis are scaring the poo out of me?

IMO it would be sacrilege -good word btw!
Why are the canti's scaring the poo out you?....Do they need tweaking?
Sort them for optimal efficency/power when you put the Pepperonis back on but please don't put V's on it. :)


Having said that though....Here's a nice big sack full of Hypocrisy on my part :D ....

But, in my defence it is a '95/96 (newer than yours) and the red Shimano DX V's really look the part IMO...But your frame is older and it would just be wrong!!
