Thought i'd finally get a pic or two of my bikes on here.

So, we've got a 18" 2000 GT Tempest as bought except LX thumbshifters and avid SD 5 levers (thanks Dave_H) and avid SD7 v-brakes front and rear (thanks harrburgundy!).

You'll have all seen the 16" 95 backwoods before, thanks a lot pickle. This one is just for the missus/pops whoever to use.

cheers fella, just cleaned up + a few new cables. I'll look after her.

I bought the tempest from new about 6/7 years ago, cant remember where from but it was a 'last years deal' type of thing.

If it hadn't of been for my dad raping the frame with various chips, it'd look just like NOS! I've done more miles on it in the last 2 weeks than i had done in the previous 7 years.
