Back in 1993 this was some metal matrix as light as you can get with 28 spokes up front with the Hope technology! It’s interesting to look back at the tech, ’93 was still mostly rigid forks, but spd’s were pretty standard. Note the fluro colours, 20 years later and we are seeing this trend come back round. That bike is nice though. Don’t stare at his hand on the seat tube as it’s a bit erotic, hard to resist on such a bike perhaps? Great rider though is our David Baker, along with the likes of Tim Gould and Nick Craig. Those guys really got the UK mountain biking to where it is today. So piss taking aside, much respect to these guys. Fluro out.
