Specialized fsr m4 sworks think 98 the first year they came out got it in the states



:shock: :shock: Amazing collection !!! Any pics of the 97 FAT Ti please ? :mrgreen:

Zzxxyy The reverse more often gets asked, ie conversion from
Ti canti to disk. Like many, i think it should only be considered when theres a frame repair but im a purist who loves originality. Only my opinion but its such a nice bike and first serial no too ? it would be a bit wrong to do that but its yours as they say. The frame design and geometry might not suit cantis either.

A very weird mix of bikes...

-Pashley Guv'nor 3 Speed to get around in general
-1933 New Hudson Carmine Club Model (a British Club bike)
-a red 1989 16" Dahon III folding bike. Got it for free, was never ridden. I polished it up and use it to commute short distances and when I have to go by train. My first folding bike; never thought that a bike like that could be so much fun. Gets me into conversations with people all the time.

soon to be-bikes/frame sets:
-1938 Dromos path racer frame and bits and pieces. Resting under the bed.
-1993 Giant Cadex CFM1 frame set

Nice, yeah NorthernDave’s last time 8) They are sooooo smooth to ride these, you hardly need any suspension. The Ti stem and bar combo gives you that little extra shock absorption up front too.
