My AlpineStars Cro-Mega

My Hardtail is a mid-90s* AlpineStars Cro-Mega LX frame, which I bought second hand back in the UK and built up. The only original components left are the frame and the front mech (which is an odd design due to the curved seat-tube). Everything else was added by me.


I quite like my bike. I had it shipped from the UK to Australia in 2001 rather than buy a new one. It's old, it's outdated and it's heavier than a modern bike, but I still really like it.


Update mid-Jane 2012: As part of a weight-loss challenge with Esther, I should soon be acquiring a new bike to complement this one, which will probably be put out to pasture as a riding-to-the-shops machine. I'll still bring it out now and again though, when I feel like a little retro hardtail riding.

Update Feb 2012: as intimated above, the new bike has arrived. It's a BMC SpeedFox SF03 and it's fantastic.
