Yes it is. but in fact I just reaslised why I a spare!! Its the one that goes on my trekker if I ever took the flexstem off!

So I have two, ones for a rebuild I'm gettign round to one day and the other should really be for the trekker, just in case.

See how you get on configuring your brakes with what you have, let me know if really stuck, but I probably ought to keep both (hoarder)!

Went for a nice drive today to pick up another 90's saracen, to go with my Traverse.

Thanks to Rod for 1st dibs.

My pleasure Dan.....they make a great pair.

Was a short stay in my garage but with the new Traverse Comp she needed more attention :-)

After lurking in these parts for a while, here's my 1989/90 Trekker:

Image

It's not the greatest picture I know. I'll get round to taking some better ones eventually. And don't worry, I've sorted out the front brake cable so it doesn't sit so high.

Bought in 1990, but sold as the previous year's model, so it's probably one of those that they put together with whatever components they had lying around in the factory. Exage 500LX groupset, but it's got a seat stay mounted rear U-brake, dodgy plastic Exage front cantis and pedals and the early STI pushbutton shifters with the plastic brake levers.

Fortunately my father passed on his hoarding tendency and I've got all of the original parts that aren't on the bike - a set of Farmer John's Nephews, the front and rear reflectors with the brackets in the same colour as the frame, dayglo yellow bottle cage (with original black Saracen bottle) and saddle.

To continue the retro theme, it's currently being kept company in an increasingly crowded hallway by a my mum's purple Dawes OneTrack of a similar age (in all its massively heavy, 200GS equipped glory), borrowed and cleaned up for the missus to ride.

Hi Nick. Welcome to the site! That's exactly the same as my first bike and I absolutely love it!

Been after a traverse for ages. Massive heavy frame but cool as can be. Love it.
