keep the good bits then huz the rest - I had one of these for about 5 minutes and it was pretty grim to ride.

Sorry.


yeah actually I quite like it :?: I will be keeping it for at least the next few months. Think it might be good fun to ride offroad.

don't be sorry,we can't all like the same stuff :lol: I'm sure you'd thing my Trailstar is too heavy, too small and has forks that are too long, but I think it's the best bike in the world :wink:

there will be date stamps on the stem, seatpost and under the seat. Date codes on the mechs and chainset

I would say 1990/91

The seat clamp broke off on mine...

I remember really wanting one of these(for some insane reason) BITD, and so it's got to be around the '89/90/91 that LGF has hinted to, above^^^

You'll be riding this at Haldon then? Looks good to me :)

What's the 'M' no. on the canti's? I've got what looks similar on front of my Trek 970. They're LX BR-M550's and have specific type blocks, 'V' type blocks work with them though :wink:

Matt.

Cheers :D

I might well bring this along to Haldon :D The brakes are BR MT62, I found a similar pair on US ebay but the postage is £33 so I'll not be going for those! I expect something willl turn up.

i think a friend of mine has (or had) an old carrera, not sure what model it was, that looked very similar to this, the paintjob was just like that but in a lighter blue colour. If you like i could get in touch and see if he still has it if you want it for any parts etc?
