All snagged off ebay recently...

As much as i'd love to be punting out cash for a Yeti, student teacher salary means i'm scrabbling around for the cheap stuff :D

File comment: And my favourite, paid a bit more for this than the others (a whole 67quid) but a near enough completely original 1986 Cannondale SM600. Can't wait to pick it up and take it for a spin. Although with them roller cams it might well not stop ;)

File comment: Late 80s Grisley Wasatch. One of 10 that Peter Grisley made himself before he started making another model that I forget the name of, and before he subcontracted out to LOOK. Bonded aluminium...light as hell but ripe for a rebuild. Any suggestions? 33qui

File comment: 1991 (I think) Cannondale sm700 with my favourite splatter paintjob...pretty original and in fairly good nick bar a few scratches and a battered seat. Full LX. 30quid.

The only reason the Grisley cost you £33, was that I bid you up from £20! It got too rich for my blood at those dizzy heights though! How is it? I thought it looked very smart. I've just built up a '92 Klein Attitude for my girlfriend to use, and she wanted me to bid on the Grisley as she prefered the look of it. Cheeky get!

And as for the Cannondale....I dream about finding things like that for £30!
