    Three cheers!!!

    My god you've aged well. 200 and still going strong.

    Though you have let yourself go lately and gained some girth (wagon wheels, +size), but I still love you

    And we've come full circle in those two centuries...

    It's moorey on an early orange 0.5, noting the 29/26 wheel combo, slack front end and no need for brakes.
    I wish my body was as old as my brain thinks it is.

    Doesn't need it on a DH bike. I think I can spot a new boost standard there. I bet that is a Brookes saddle too.

    Wouldn't you love to give the finely dressed gentleman a blat on a new CF bike. That would make his day.
