    1994 GT Tequesta Blacklight - XC700 + Kooka

    Great stuff - I really like seeing these 'real world' bikes in among the exotica. Not sure it needs skinwall tyres either......

    Mid 90s pedals

    Tioga Surefoot. Replaced a pair with some more expensive XTs but to be honest the Surefoots were lighter with better grip.

    94 Team Marin (sort of neo-retro)
