commonsense prevailed, and i deleted it from my watched items list. a bit too small, and i don't want any more bikes (at the moment)

You chose wisely, I was sorely tempted, especially at the bargain price.

Ahhh, there's nothing like a good poo brown rattlecan job to make you smile. Unfortunately, that is not a good poo brown rattlecan job.

What in Sheldons name has he done to the shifters?

Made them better, obviously!

I think this should be reported to the RSPCB - that bike is definitely mistreated

An eclectic mix, though One shouldn't just drill holes in a frame.

Half step Shimano cranks! Plus matching Deore pedals. Rad. I have seen gen 1 ( :?: ) Deore Derailleurs before, but I never realised that it was a full group set. If you do buy it Scott, I'm pretty sure I have a Fd/Rd plus Deore downtube shifters in much better nick than that, I'll pass them on if you would like the full set.

Looks like there's another hole drilled next to the seatpost on the top tube :( Why the hell would anybody do that?
