    A bike of firsts - '92 Marin Team Issue

    Lovely memories of that Courier. That one i.i.r.c, is an '87 (lugged) with the '88 decals. I saw a couple of those at the time before the '88 purple/ white fade one came out. Very nice.

    Litespeed Ocoee 1995 - Gravel conversion.

    That just looks right. Good job. :-) Really nice Grav conversion (although imo, Grav is essentially mountain biking before the comfort years).

    This 1994 Kona "Explosif" nedeed some love.

    I'm not sure bike design didn't peak with the '94 Explosif. Quite lovely.

    1986 Specialized Rockhopper

    And I think the first year of the Rockhopper Comp was 1988. The Stumpjumper had multiple models in '87 though.

    1986 Specialized Rockhopper

    It could well be a 1986 model. It has the graphics of an '87 but without the small 'Specialized' on the top tube. There were thin lines that ran either side of the writing too, but those can be seen on the head tube decal.And the '87 graphics may well have been the same as the '86 anyway, I...

    DT Hugi Swiss Made Hubs

    I have nothing but praise for my various Hugi and 240 hubs. Always worked well and were simple and reliable.

    1992 Klein Adroit

    Absolutely lovely. While I'm not into amber walled tyres on modern bikes, when the pics started showing that with them, it made it just perfect to me.

    Snaps from the Bianchi Factory

    Just found these on an old hard drive from a visit to Bianchi a few years ago that I was told I wasn't allowed to photograph for my Belgian journalist, after we got there.

    Brexit and shipping to EU

    Agreed. And even just posting gifts now causes so much hassle compared to even sending to the USA. Where are you in rural France out of interest. Me too.

    1989 Specialized Stumpjumper

    Good grief. What i would have done for that in 1989. I remember falling for the '87 range in Evans Kingston, then the '88 in this colour (magenta pink / Dinucci green) coming out and that being the holy grail to an '87 Muddy Fox'd me. Quite Lovely.

    Buying From France post Brexit.

    Living in France and buying much online, I can say with experience, even the better couriers like DPD or UPS are fine until the item arrives in a French depot. Then it goes wrong literally every time. My Moots came from Steamboat Springs in Colorado fine, until it got to the local UPS depot...
