love old dales. i know they get slagged for being corporate and all that
but they do make some nice bikes
in the "shed" i've got 2 super vee carbons (95) and a 97 m900
one of the super vee's cost me near 2k in 95
the other one was free, on its way to the dump, bloke tried to sell it but
got no takers(guess the ad read something like this.. mountain bike, top of the range cost £2000 will sell for £200 or similar)
had pace rc36 forks xt stuff but all a bit tired (he told me it belonged to his son who was in aus and not coming back,so just clutter to the dad
kinda explains the worn out state of stuff)
the 900 was a commuter bike in edinburgh but some low life tried to steal it ,got the wheels/seat post etc came back for the rest but got defeated by the lock or scared off. so it languished in a cleaners cupboard for some time till preston (my mates brother )was asked to remove it
he changed jobs etc and gave it to my mate chalkie(his brother) who gave it to me in leu of payment for some machining i did for him.
so when i got it ,it was about 7 yrs old but had done about 20 miles
since then it's been thrashed round the lomonds/cairngorms/glentress etc

seems to enjoy it.

thats a lot older than mine mines a caad 3 frame
they kinda got something right back then did'nt they
it's easy to be an old grumpy but when you lusted after these bikes
years ago you don't loose the want do you ?i'd rather (and do)have a shed
full of old but fit bikes than 1 new shiney bike.
