Went to my local tip today and they have a shop selling various discarded possessions that someone at the tip had decided are too good to throw away. I could see an old mountain bike in amongst the usual pile of Halfords rubbish, and went over to have a look. The Orange sticker and a quick lift was enough, £15 exchanged hands, and I guiltily arrived at home with the usual apologetic look on my face for turning up with another rusty old bicycle.

I've been looking through old threads and have come to the conclusion that it's a post 93 Clockwork, and based on a lack of black bikes with the decals I'm guessing a possible repaint?

Can't tell you how pleased I am it was certainly my lucky day yesterday!

If anyone can add any info I would be very grateful!

very nice find and lucky to take it away so cheap, couple of years ago i saw a gt avalanche at my local tip but the lovely staff wouldn't let me take it, i even offered the guy a back hander :lol: . i thought they were called recycling centres for a reason.
anyway you got a goodun there with a nice lx m560 groupset by the look of it.
