So I was at my local LBS asking for some advice about fixing a damaged fork (for my Pinarello project). Ended up getting a lecture about the dangers of riding old school bikes (the fork was bent, dangerous and should not be ridden on at all :-) )

I left feeling a bit sheepish. But just as I got home he gave me a call with "I think I have something for you ... ". I popped back a few days later to take a look, and am now the proud owner of this fine machine.

It's actually a bit small (had to admit it), so actually now my wife is now the owner.

Seems like it's an unbranded frame, so guess the original owner bought the frame only, then spent some money covering it in XTR kit. Looks also like it's got a syncros cattleprod stem? No decal, but it looks like it to me??

Will add some photos on the next post ...

Looking at the bike, the frame needs some tlc, but apart from that everything is very good. Not bad for 150 notes, complete with a very nice spare wheelset :-)
