One of the bicycles I’ve owned over the years. What Was It? More than a mountain bike, Spotty was a legend. Fundamentally a Technicomps Bigfoot, it’s birth was a long and laborious process starting with the purchase of a fluorescent orange Bigfoot frame at a bike show and a verbal promise to transfer all the components from a 17" model to the 20" frame. During the following two months, the person it was purchased from left the shop and the two new lads wanted nothing to do with it, consequently a lot of the components mysteriously changed down in spec.
