I am planning a new build, a 1988 Giant Super Sierra 8)

I have a frame and forks but am looking for some information on the original factory spec so I can source parts (or similar spec).

I did search but nothing. Can anyone help.

:D

Group set was full XT M730 including the fat bear trap pedals. Rims were araya RM25. The rest was giant own spec stuff inc foam grips.

Vinevo or Makster may be able to help you further.

That frame was built up with full XT M730 Ed.
I'll be changing the rims on the wheels that came off, so you're welcome to those when I do :D

I have rummaged through the bike shed and found some STX RC cranks and mechs which will get the bike up and running until I find something else. I will be using some suntour thumb shifters too for the time being. This build with be a bit of hotch potch for a while I think :oops:

Thanks for the offer of the rims, ill take you up on those when they are going :)
