With a snowflake on the front :shock: You're brave! :lol:

Looks nice for a freebie, almost makes me want a rigid hack.....


Actually, snowflakes are pretty tough wheels!!

the feeling of a rigid fork steering is like nothing else beats sloppy sus forks anyday!

dont know how far i could ride with them now though ....been a bit spoilt with bounce!!

just had another check over and it even had the front reflector still in place as well as the clear plastic tube covering the rear brake cable to stop it rubbing the paint!!

and the cables are crossed under the down tube too...
I remember them doing this to make a straighter line for the shifting :roll:

Pretty sure that's a 1996:

check the specs on Bikepedia against what was on the bike when you got it.

Nice colour!

Also protects the head tube from cable rub, I always do it.

Definitely 96 size 19, looks like a good condition frame, you owe your workmate a pint!

There a few scratches but most will t-cut out and the rest is just dirt and neglect.
