Thank you! She was a wreck off ebay with a piece of seatpost stuck in the frame which I had to get out with three attempts of caustic soda! Paint was that bad, and know a couple of the decals aren't 100% correct in size, but the frames are lovely, pingy and light (4.4lbs) Ditched the few DX parts that came with it and gave it the justified upgrades. Such underrated bikes due to their rarity!
