Theres a bloke near us sells bikes out of an Industrial unit. Last week my mate got a set of Ksyriums of him for a steal ( sorry to talk about the dark side ) . Any ways thought I d have a look see if I could get a set of winter hoops for my Road bike.

Whilst I m looking through the rack I Spy a Giant MCM team Carbon, A bike of my dreams in the yester years when I did a bit of X.C racing.

I wouldn't contemplate buying a 15 year old carbon road bike who's providence I didn't know , but this appealed to me.

Its the disc mount version and its teamed up with a Rock Shox Judy and some crappy 8 speed Gruppo which is mainly XT rear mech and STX/RC chainset and some wheels which look like a Halo copy of Cross Maxes ( heavy as hell)

The guy would take £200 all in for it. Is it worth it?

I m thinking of throwing some 9 speed XTR a set of Shimano discs and maybe an Old Pace RC38 at it.

I ve not riden MTB for quite a while, but my Road Club tends to go all perverted and head off to the hills in the Winter, and something Quirky and a bit retro appeals to me.
