I won this recently on ebay then wondered how the hell I was going to get back to East Yorkshire from Thetford, a short while later and Legrandefromage has agreed to go and collect it and bring it to me at last Saturdays Peaks National!
You've got to love the unbelievable generosity of people on this site, Mark more than anyone as he also performed a massive act of karma denoting a full bike as a prize at the Peaks ride too
So the bike, Mark said it was well used I think were his words, slight understatement it was a bit of a shed to be honest, everything important was in good working order though surprisingly under years of crap and neglect.
I wish I had taken some before pics because the frame and parts have polished up so nicely! The bike has had a few aftermarket upgrades to nearly full Lx with an Xt front mech which is always nice and other than a Ti saddle, grips, a Ritchey stem and of course cables I havent had to replace anything.
This is to be my commuter/road bike and has replaced my very heavy Timberline and now I've fitted the guards, rack and cages etc its still very light.
Not had chance for a ride yet so we will see if my ride to work is any quicker soon.
Thanks again Mark
