Pics of JMC bike attached as per earlier post (several weeks ago). The bike was one of his hardtail training bikes, procured when I worked at Hardisty Cycles (who were his sponsor at the time in the North East) back in the early 90s, before he turned pro for specialized. It was well battred and was originally black/white, I then had it respayed in same scheme, but red/white. The frame was made by Kev Winter and i think its Columbus thron, but may be wrong??

Half the kit is original and half updated since. see what you think. I have no plans for bike really. Have had it for around 17 years anyway, although it has hardly been used in last 10years. Its a bit battered and was used in first few years after i attained it but not much since then. Has just been serviced and although heavy is in perfect working order. have posted some info before, so you may be able to find original threads.
Details of kit below from what I remember:
Original kit:
Deore LX canti’s
Deore DX frt mech
Specialized chainset with Middleburn cranks
Deore XT thumbies
Mavic X517 rim on Xt bub
Zoom 170 bars
Avid levers
Titanium flite saddle

Newer kit:
Retro Ritchey Omega Lite 2.1 tyres
XT rear mech, nearly new
RR wheel, Truvativ hub,, SUP rim
Road Headset, Campag Chorus
Road stem 140mm Syncros
Shimano Spds
Concept bar ends

Let me know what you think, I may sell as need to rationalise anyway..

Interesting. If you want a valuation please use the 'how much' thread above.

superb seatpost pinch, like the early mountain-goats, and then translated onto the zooka stem. Nice.
