I am still trying to work out what part of the body that is!... looks like a pretty tidy graft though. Mine was like that but these days looks pretty good ( 20 years later :lol: ).

This is for Mr 90125 who just sent me a rather nasty private message regarding my post earlier in this topic. I'm extremely sorry I replied - and my reply was not in any way intended to offend or upset. :( Please at least enable your PMs so I can reply back to you.

I think it's a lesson to only ride inexpensive bikes on the road, given the remarkable ability for motorists to crash into us.

Mate, if that is what 90125 is on about then he is more worried about it than me.

Chapter 7 or Chapter 11? There's a difference. One allows you protection from creditors so you can restructure finances and potentially trade out of trouble. The other is like what we have here.

Ok, that's liquidation not protection. A shame. :(

They seem to have a fair bit of stock, not sure if it means that means we will spot you commuting with a set of mad fibers.

Beside the dodgy listing you want to avoid the clincher version as there is/was an issue with carbon delamination arising from overheating brake tracks.

Buy the tubular version, different construction with no braking issues and virtually indestructible. My 2nd hand pair of MF tubular ceramics arrived yesterday :mrgreen:

After testing them and rejecting them a while back I simply can't resist them - oh so light and fun to ride on :D
