This bike looks cooler every time I see it 8) (the grips are too green though... :lol: ) Those Columbus Max OR tubes......mmmm !

If it ever fancies a new home, there's a cozy spot in my workshop just waiting for it and some good trails for it to play on too.

I'd bloody well give it "town bike", given half a chance.....

Seriously nice mate - if only I could find another.

Your chain tug has been recycled mate...sold to the local Marina..plenty of folks down there wanting a spare anchor :wink: :lol:

Grips too green for sure...have ordered another set..in white
If it looks shite its Kaisers fault :roll:

Just bought some modern Avid Ultimates from a fellow retrobiker (thanks fella)...then I think I will be happy, well until I can respray the forks to colour match.

I was thinking it would look nice to pick up the black on the frame with black P2s, which are also quite easy to find even in triple-butted flavour.
