    Hi all,
    Ive just got back in the saddle of owning a blade after 8 or so yrs break.
    Ive loved blades ever since ive first owned one back in 99.

    Just bought a 2005 blade in black with gold wheels, its a great ride but i still will be doing a few mods to it.

    Happy to do meet ups etc i live in the bath area.

    Matt

    Hi and welcome! Please post some pictures and your preference in levers. Is gold best? Help us decide!

    Nice to see a fellow carrot cruncher on here though !
