The CityJets have just arrived, so I quickly fitted them along with a pair of thinner tubes.

Have to wait for some deliveries but will take them for a spin later :tongue:

A classic 1994 Carrera. The city jets will improve the ride over tractor tyres but do little to improve the look IMO.

Looks like I got the year correct then - knew it was somewhere between 93-95

What's the name on the top tube? It's not a 'mission' is it?

I dunno - I think 90s no-suss mountain bikes are going to be the next trend after utility / dutch bikes are finished...I think we'll start to notice there's more of them around in 2012 and the full blown trend is going to peak about 2015.

ROFL - not sure about that, but im actually really happy with the bike. Although solid, the frame is in the kind of shape you would imagine... I'm considering getting it powder coated over the winter perhaps.
