Really gave the US Steel bikes a run for their money back then [and now too going by those photos!]..

Neil,

I think remember when you were building that bike. As I was doing an RC200 at the time and 'dibbing' the same bits you were. Why'd you sell it? I always thought it looked great.

I hate missing bikes. Really wish I hadn't got rid of my Merlin Echo now.

I remember when you sold that, I think I kept a picture of it somewhere.

Top tube was too short for me.

I sold the BOLX to buy a full susser, that I hardly used. I don't think I've ever ridden a bike that tracked so beautifully, I remember riding it as soon as it was built, on edges of ruts that would normally have me off into them, thinking WOW! this is wonderful.

Nearly died when I saw hibernian's, especially with original forks. Even more broken hearted now that's sold it!!!

Anyone know who bought it? tell them I want it.....please! :D

That bike was indeed the BOLX. Stunner.

Don't come up very often either do they? Buy a new un?

My, it is indeed a small world.

Jez, your garage must be packed! Feeler gauge distance between bikes?
