Between Dinas Mawddwy and Lake Vyrnwy in Mid-Wales
It claimed to be some sort of 'highest mountain road' but didn't really feel like it?
This was another cracker a bit further on

Just spruced mine up and still reckon it's the best I've had in the mid size class

Picked up a spare set of wheels too, so I can swap between Metz Sahara's for mainly road and some MT21's on the other set

Got some HB frames on order and bought some Wolfman panniers, ready for some travels

Only thing next is a seat rework by Tony Archer and she'll be spot on - hope to get to Pyrenees in 2013

where on earth did you get a spare set of wheels from johhny? have been looking for a set for my x-c for the last year...

also how much did the re-worked seat cost? (feel free to pm me the cost if you don't want to post it up here)

and that's a nice looking bike too...

Got the wheels from Ebay UK, 1000 miles from new (no discs though) for a good price (cheap :laugh: ) for the pair

That's the Xmoto low seat - i'm going to take over the blue one to Tony Archer and see what foam he recommends, I'm thinking some sort of memory foam and a bit wider at the rear

Had her from nearly new and she cleans up lovely

you did well to get those wheels then... only thing i have ever seen on ebay is a single x-country front wheel which was a bit too far from me to bother with...
