Well, here's an other sweetheart of mine.
It is a Brodie Expresso from 1996.
First there was the frame - I got it in NOS condition from a collector in south germany last year.
As you can see on the pics, the frame actually is a bit small for me- but it works great, and I didn't find another frame in this great condition.
Then it was time for testing some components.
The frame is from 1996 and thus suspension corrected, so unfortunately I cannot use a brodie gatorblade fork
So I tried an AMP fork (and I really like them), but I soon saw that this was not the final build-up.
By the way: although I'm looking for a gatorblade in good condition, perhaps not for this frame...
So THIS is the final building.
The tires will be soon replaced with Smoke/Dart first generation.
I was overjoyed riding this bike first time!
