Got this lovely machine yesterday 8)

I'm not going to take praise for the build, because that must go to legrandfromage :wink: All I've done is fit the WTB tyres (thanks spitoon), Vetta saddle and SPD's. Just waiting to hear back from Gil regarding decals.

I've yet to ride it due to family being over this weekend, but initial lap-of-the-garden tells me its a good fit :D

Edit: Its a 1992, not 1991 bike as originally stated.

Enjoy..............I still consider my long gone 550 Da Baws in comparison to other bikes since............maybe the rigid forks and flexstem as opposed to either total rigid or suspension forks............I shall perhaps investigate one day.

Needs a Mint Sauce sticker on't top tube.......... :P

Thanks mate :D

Although not on a par with my lust for the Zaskar and RTS of old, I have always liked Pro-Flex's. I remember test riding one of the first Pro-Flex Beast's when a rep had one at the National Cyclo Cross Champs in Nottingham 8)

Will post some more pics up when Gil has done his thing on the decals :wink:

It was very light - I want my pedals back now, you'll see why in a couple of days.
