Specialized M2

This is my second build since joining the retrobike crew! I've owned this M2 from new in 1993 and have more or less rode it everyday! The bike has had lots of changes over the years but I thought I would take it back to sort of original spec with a few changes. I love the ride of the M2 and would recommend it to anyone and this bike will always stay in my collection. The bike originally came with 7 speed LX groupset and grey umma gumma's and grey perforated specialized saddle. I've gone with an 8 speed LX groupset this time plus a later wheelset. The frame did have quite alot of scratches but I bought a paint pen from halfords and touched it up in a few places. I think all in all its come together quite nicely.


A few pic's of earlier builds.

Very nice fella.. :)

I would be going for black crank and black seatpost and stem though... would set the frame off nicer ... just my 2$ worth, but love the rest.. :)

Dig it! :D
Love one myself!

Feels good to have had it from new too. My favourite frame is a RM Blizzard that I bought new in '95, it's a keeper for life! ;)
