Bout Ye!

Alright folks, SB from Belfast, N. Ireland, saying Hi! Just back on the cycling band wagon after a few years out. 40+ and middleage spread taking over. I've been riding an 07 Giant Trance 2 with a few upgrades for the last 8mths. It's helped me shed 3 stone since Jan 1st, so being back to my fighting weight, I went and bought myself an 06 Trek SL for the road, as the road is were my heart lies. She's just about to be graced with a set of Mavic ksyrium SL's, because I'm surrounded with some excellent hillclimbs. I'd love some of you to have ago and identify the exact model, as I can't find it anywhere on the net! The MTB is superb, and I'm lucky because I'm a few miles from a totally natural XC singletrack, full of tight climbs and downhill berms, running round a 10 mile loop, in a natural forest!
Great site by the way and loads of useful info!

Keep her between the hedges

regards SB

Hello SB, did you post in the Road Cycling forum to see if anyone can place the Mavics? I would not know one from t'other, but if you were to ask me about vintage steel...I could wing it!
