Stylish and interesting!What a great colour.
And it looks practical as well,which is more than can be said for most of my retrobikes.

That's a fine looking hybrid. Mine is a size smaller - a 20" and it just gets used and abused, but I wish it looked like yours. Owned from new, I initially used mine as a mountain bike before I bought a KHS Montana Comp. It's in good shape but I got chain suck issues with it early on until I re-hashed the chain ring situation and used it more as a road bike. The Ritchey chainrings were silver not black.

There cannot have been many of these sold in the UK. I remember ringing round for one and this is all I could find; a size too small really, but it was on offer in 1994. I've always loved the way it rides and the kit on it is mostly superb. It now has R221/R224 Sora flat bar shifters on it which work perfectly with the XT mechs.

There was this one last thing I had in mind:

I was never 100% happy with the Kalloy UNO stem and noodle adapter. So I restored an old Noodle Syncros...

Guess I can call this finished now - until the next addition :-D. I dont really want or need the Syncros Decals right now - maybe someday. The bike should not look too overpowered.

I'm finding your meticulous painting / repainting techniques extremely informative. Having searched for specific metalflake colours in model shops and car parts stores, I never thought of mixing my own. Good tip to keep in mind!

And the bike looks both capable and speedy!
