this one was bought by a mate of mine's brother
to commute from the south side of edinburgh to the center
within about day 4 someone stole the seat /post
so he was made aware of the security issuse
3 or 4 weeks later the wheels were stolen
it then laid D locked to the railings as more bits were taken
the security at his building told him to remove it or face a fine
so it then lived in the airing coupboard in his flat till 2003 when
he was moving to auckland nz ,so he asked his brother to move it on
this is when i got it ,built with what i got around and still pretty much the same
great bike for exploring on

As I told you before, I'm in love with the yellow color! I'm thinking of putting more yellow on the bike:

- yellow Rock Shox Judy SL with yellow AC crown
- yellow ControlTech stem
- yellow Magura Raceline brakeset
- yellow Flite
- I even saw a nice yellow Cook Bros Racing cranck

Am I going crazy on this one? :oops:
If you think so, please stop me! Otherwise, encourage me!

Cheers,
Bart

My 2 cents - go with the forks but keep the original stem....

Thanks!

What about the brakes? Change them for black XT's, yellow Magura Raceline's or red Magura John Tomac's? Or should I keep it original?
