Picked this up the other day, always wanted from from BITD, its a 17.5 frame, and apart from me changing the front quick release because it was bent, it is 100% original even down to the air in the tyres :wink:

Its by no mean a minter, has scratches and chips, but no rust, rides great!

big confession, i only knew about it on Ebay about 1 hour before it ended because it was posted on this forum by you i think?

It is missing 1 side of the pedal, are they universal or just on Alpinestars does anyone know?

The pedals were made by Wellego, so you might be lucky and find one.

Great looking bike. My brother had a fluo-pink and white 91 Cro-Mega LX BITD and I always wanted one of these beauties. Much more subtle...
for an e-stay.

Nice!

Got one myself last week for 99p (but without wheels) on eBay as well. Mine has one thumbie though, does anyone know if it originally came with thumbies or sti shifters?
