Here's a few shots of some of the stable.

98 Giant MCM980

Some "in motion" shots of my LTS1

For those Melbournites, the riding shots were taken up at Blackwood. The shots were taken by Karl Pavey, who, I am led to believe is known by some of the UK riders here.

I'll post some "show and shine" pictures when I get the chance.

New wheels for the Giant today. NOS Hope Hubs. V-brake only, aluminium flanges with ti centres. Also with Ti skewers.

Here's my steel hardtail. 2002 IRD (Interloc) Tempest. 851 frame. IRD are known for their road gear but made mtb frames for two years. 2001 - 2002. As far as I know, only two of these frames made it to Oz. This is the only one that sees dirt. Great bike.

And a few Details....

Yeah, I know the brake is overkill but this this STOPS!

Meanwhile......

The LTS's are lagging behind in the rebuild stakes but I got both shocks away today to get the compression revalved. When I get them back things will happen.
