Can someone give me a luddites guide to adding photos please. Files seem too big. Nae a clue as to how to do this type of technology stuff.

You need a Photobucket or Flikr account to upload to then copy and paste the URL onto the thread, if you follow?

Nice 8)

Did you drill the clamps or did they come like that?

Aye need to change the chainset, but ran out of money. I got the bike complete with Manitou 4's, stem was too short, so changed forks, stem, seatpost, tires, front brake and a few other bits.

Clamps I drilled and rear brake lever slotted myself.

The frame looks to be in very good condition, and it's a really good quality frame, excellent buy.

My only component regret is the black post. The silver stem I like, and I'm sure the colour scheme was designed with silver parts in mind, but a silver stem and a black post rarely look right together IMHO.

I know life is too hard up there in the frozen wastes for southern softies like me, but I didn't realise you needed Trailrakers in September! That's my winter tyre.
