Wow...my first mountain bike back in 1988..bought to ride round Europe and beyond...didn't quite work that way but it did go off-road. Great seeing one again.

Yes I can also say I like the way these ride, can't explain why but I may not say the same after 300 miles or so!

my Escaper is here http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=67678

also you wouldnt have a better shot of the frame tubing sticker as mine was missing when the frame was pulled out of the skip

Hi
No I mean the sticker on the seat tube just below the front mech clamp, above the bottom bracket. Unless that is what is is I can just see it through the chainset o your pictures.

cheers.
