Thanks much for the compliment and warm welcome.

This was my first hardtail and I've enjoyed riding it since '96. The plan was to sell it when I bought my Cannondale in '02 but I soon learned there is something really special about a steel frame to which no Al bike can compare.

Looking forward to riding again once we have our Spring thaw here on this side of the pond.
