Tremendous. Really pleased for you as I know you have been after one of these for a while. Now don't go putting any modern bling on it!!

Cheers Tim, hope i've been accurate in your little biography! It would be nice to get some results together from bitd, as I can't find any records anywhere.

Am I correct in thinking that the 1991 and 92 production frames are identical too?

As for my ti-mega, I've got some stunning wheels on the way (those shown are stolen from the Dyna-Tech) and have some NOS amberwall smoke and dart tyres for it. The saddle is a later model flite, but i'm happy enough with it. Only things u'm missing are a seatpost for it, i'm thinking a black M730 XT post would be ideal (27.2mm if anyone has one) and some skewers.

Original UK price for the frame and forks back in 1991 was £2600, frame alone was £1900!
