thought the sannie would suit skinner rustwalls with its main role being XC and general riding rather than heavy work.

IRC notos xc 1.95 rustwalls.....

opinions?

I really wouldn't bother with the notos.
Looking good otherwise.

Paul Smith's San Andreas, as put back together as it was in its prime (from smithpic.co.uk):

I'm pretty sure it's riddled with cracks, so not a rider any more. Had a pretty good innings though, I think ;-)

nah, wont be going ott with red, just a few small things. tell you what, bumble bee is huge mind, a step ladder wont be a bad idea if anyone smaller than 6ft wants a shot of it!


just noticed smithys sannie had a long stem too, he was tall if i remember too?

He's around the 6ft mark. It's just an early 90s stem :)
