These are the first decent photos I've had of this since building last autumn (thanks Spudly).

Its the first carbon frame I've owned and I love it. The bike is very fast and handles superbly.

Anyone any idea on the year? I'm guessing 1996?

What size is it/how tall are you ?

They seem highly rated in the reviews I looked at Chris

Missed this. Are they as light as said? Reviews always seemed to love them.

Met the team at Newnham around 97/98 for a world cup race there and they signed loads of stickers and stuff for me. Couldn't name them but top team and riders from that perspective. Great times.
