i know its not to most of your tastes. but it suits me realy well. Had a few other higher end bikes and realy didnt get on with em.. i love a bike with a bit of weight and a decent size frame. so it fits the bill ok..

only thing i want is a shorter stem and some thinner tyres.....

oh and in the pics its runnin the shimano up front and clarkes rear pads grrrrrrr damn things

here it is anyway
*specialized bx23 rims
*specialzed tyres
*diacompe levers
*suntour thumbies
*shimano lx300 rear suntour front
*avocet saddle (need another if anyone has one???)
*onza short barends
*shimano canti's with aztec pads all round

i love the thing too so got it datatagged as theres so many chavs round here that will steal anything just to say they can.... :cry:

I remember this bike from the many catalogues i used to have b4 throwing them out stupidly :roll:

I remember liking it back in the day and still looks lovely now, i'm sure it's '90, i don't recall it being in the '91 catalogue anyway and certainly not a '92 so '89 or '90 sounds right to me.
