Glad to see you've uprated the forks for Mrs. Ned :D

I am all generosity!

I still have the original straight forks in the shed.

And all the original components which were mainly XT with the Raleigh steel stem and bars in matching silver grey.

Any suggestions for a square tapered axle length for an MT4 running a triple ring set ?

Nice pic Ned :D

Is it one of yours? I just picked it from the aftermath thread!

For axles I generally use a 122.5 for triples but mine are all 'old type' early 90's ones (LX and XT) so perhaps this has changed with later ones? For example, I think an early XTR uses a shorter one.

As I'm the guy on the bike behind you I can't really claim it :D

Thanks for the thoughts on the axle.

I've just trawled all through this thread and not seen one picture of an Odyssey even though they've been talked about a lot.

Here's a shot of mine in the guise of Mrs Ned's cruising machine but it was transformed last year into a more conventional bike and can be seen in action during last years Peaks ride complete with matching period jersey.

I can take a better shot of it in its conventional format if anyone's interested!


Hang you head in shame Ned.. That is a dredful thing to do to an Odssey..what were ya smoking when you put those bars on? and the mud guard? :cry:

Yeh, I know, but that was before I'd joined this lot and realised what a classic I'd got. And Mrs Ned needs comfort not speed - and I'd bought it for her (allegedly) in the first place. I'd have hoped that it's a lot more acceptable in its current incarnation.

The mudguards date back to when it was my 'winter MTB'. I got fed up with a wet muddy streak up my back and a wet *rs*. The front one only came off to make it easier to fit into the back of the car.

I now need to build another bike for Mrs Ned still using the (very comfortable) bars and saddle. They are an integral part of any bike I build for her.

dyna experts, any ideas on the seatpost diameter on my '94 Diablo LX above?

thinking about nicking some Pace RC36 Pro Class 2's off my bro's ride to try on the front of her. they're set at 80mm i think plus there will be a decent amount of sag so should be OK...

cheers, andrew
