Got this frame delivered today (thanks thomas!), and will be building up for some light XC work.

Think I've got forks sorted with either some Jett's or Judy's I've got knocking around.

Rest of group I've got so far:

- STX-RC Hubbed rear and Formula front wheels on Mavic rims
- STX-RC Chainset (MC34)
- Alivio MC18 8 Speed shift/brake levers
- HG50 11-30 cassette
- STX-RC Front mech
- STX rear mech
- PC870 chain- Panaracer tyres
- Azonic Bars on short Bontrager stem

Brake wise, probably some later Avids I've got knocking about

Image

That should get me rolling and can then make changes/upgrades on the way.

Pics of build to follow....

Matt.

Decent Schwin 19" aluminum Moab hardtail frame. Can't quite determine the year. Moab 2 or Moab 3? The Moab is my favorite hardtail. Got several of them.

The STX-RC gruppo, was that the level of the original componentry? The original fork probably was a RS Indy C or XC.

Please post pics of the build?
