At the Tour of Britain stage finish today 2 things genuinely made me smile.
A few roadies from Chard Wheelers CC stopped and talked, at length, politely, about my Dyna Tech Ti MTB!
They were genuinely interested and seemed to be rather knowlegeable about older MTB's. One even remembered the Orange and White Clockworks with RC35's.
All this happened in the Shimano 'events gazebo' and attracted the interest of the Shimano rep. who after commenting "WOW!" then gave me some freebies and said that '92 XT was the best groupset that they ever made.
Strange times indeed!
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
