I'm not sure if M-Trax are allowed on this thread but, as it's labeled SPD and DynaTech, here goes.

This is the bike I picked up from the tip earlier in the year, an M-Trax Ti 700, which I believe has titanium top and down tubes.

It's in a pretty rough state at the moment, but the aim is to re-build it next year for the summer.

:lol: You're in luck - That MT5 is now mine & the RC35 are available as I've fitted rigid RC30.


Hi,

I don't want to hijack the thread so perhaps we should take this to PM or a new thread but I'm very interested in the what appears to be double chainring setup on that Dyna-Tech you purchased...

If it is indeed a double, is there some more detail on it? Friction shifter for the front mech using a standard XT front mech?

Cheers,
Steve

MT4 looks great Ibbz, the forks really suit it.

Cheers man, she's not finished yet.
Got a noS XT sharkfin to put on, light weight tyres, plus she needs a bit more TLC, the pace rings are a bit worn, might replace those along with the Bottom bracket

She's more or less early to mid 90ies build, bar the brakes pedals and grips.

68mm shell width but the BB spindle length will be determined by the crankset you are fitting.
Looks like you have XT M730 or Deore MT-60 cranks in your pictures, in which case you'll need one with a 122mm spindle.

I can recommend the Shimano UN55 BB.
