Cheers for the comments - I thought it would be fun to post this
I'm pretty sure I would have sold it if I hadn't put that dent in the top tube three weeks after I bought it. Nobody is going to buy a frame with a dent like that in it.
I bought it with the rigid forks but put Manitou Mach 5's on it, which seemed okay at the time. I bought a new frame in 1999 and retired this one bacause the handling had gone all wrong - I though the frame had lost it's spring after it's hard life
In 2001 I decided to singlespeed it and put the rigids back on - this made the frame came alive and it's such an amazingly springy ride - weighing almost 22lbs helps - I completely love it again. When I took the Mach 5's apart they were fit only for the bin - no wonder it felt rubbish.
I built the radial laced wheel for a laugh in 2002 never expecting it to last, and yet it's only been trued once.
I bought my first Carbon seatpost in 93 or 94 having bent two control tech's and snapped the clamp on a Syncros. It's a lovely Bontrager Titec which is still in use on another bike... although I have had to araldite the clamp a couple of times when it began to turn. It used to be on this bike but it's a 27.2 and this frame is a 27mm.
The Cats Wiskas is 27.2 so the Bonty post will be on the move again soon
