because I have run out of money and keep getting outbid on ebay :(

however the MKS 2000's are period so will do for now until I unearth that rather hard to find set of affordable beartraps :!:

If only it was 5p Mr P, fake money from my sons sweet shop arrangement he's got going on, I buy the sweets, he sells them back to me.

cheers folks and know what you mean about the front end, the wheel feels miles away when you are in the saddle :shock:

mind you the slack angles do grow on you.


yes, going up hill, out of the saddle, not so fun, but...
flying downhill while in the saddle- a complete blast!
:twisted:

Gary, you are freaking fast, man! It looks great, and I'm happy it's receiving such a warm welcome.

I'm going to hook you up with a set of suntour xc-II beartraps and a set of vintage grips- that bike is worthy of them, and just won't be complete without.

But it looks great 8)
