As promised months ago...

Finally got round to scanning it...

From Feb '93 MBUK, but I'm putting it down as a '92 bike instead...

Lots of similarities to the Zinn frames in detailing, and beautiful components...!

Enjoy!

Bea-u-tiful bike...

I'm sure if Isla ditched those huge glasses she used to wear that she'd have won more races through less wind drag!!! :shock:

I want that mavic rear mech by the way!

This pic graced my wall BITD.

Stunning frame, beautiful paintwork and a great choice of running gear.

Love it!

(oh, re-sized and loaded the pic up again to avoid neck cramp!!)

I remember that article! What's she got in that water bottle? It's glowing like a fully charged set of nite lites!

I dunno. It's not like they've put them on wrong by mistake, it's the way she ran them BITD.

If it worked for her then that's OK ain't it?

loads of people used to put their levers upside down for a while, I think it started just before rapidifire emerged. I didn't like it myself.

Miles away from her new mtb. Full Ti frame and basically every component is carbon. Very light though. How times have changed. I much prefer the one in the scan mind you. :)

Bought a bike off her the other day. She has hardly changed in appearance at all.
