That is a lovely bike... almost ridiculously understated, but looks like it would be ideal for the purpose... probably the only thing I'd change would be the saddle (to a flite style, which I find most comfortable.)

Very nice of you to say so - thanks.

I did take that saddle off and put a Brookes sprung flyer on (can't remember the model - bought it second hand) it looked good but someone pinched it.

As a result I've been riding this a lot. I made it for my girlfriend - but it's too much fun..

It's like riding a tall, fast BMX to work.

That's brilliant - thanks for posting this brochure. My RSP titanium MTB looks exactly like the one displayed, apart from the optional magura rim brakes and a slightly more restrained syncros ahead stem. see my gallery for pics...

Looking at this page of the brochure it says Frame options - Reynolds 853.

Has anyone ever seen this particular 853 hardtail from this era? (I'm not talking about the later RSP flame coloured RSP 450)

If so, don't suppose you could link a picture of it perhaps?

Ive just bought an rsp ti 18" mtb frame looks like the one in the brochure here with riveted on cable guides, i was wondering what axle to crown measurement rigid fork would work well on it? I have a 44.5cm ac kona one and would like to know if it is suitable. Cheers.

I use 440mm a-c on mine and it gives it quite laid back steering.
