Bought and paid for. Now need to figure out the build. Mat believes it to be from 91 or 92 and the 130mm rear spacing would seem to back that up so I guess the default choice would be XT 7 speed. I have some super light 1” ritchey / Tange forks, and some RC30’s. If I went with the latter, I’d probably be forced to do a best of British build with circa 94 hope ti hubs, middleburn cranks and x-lite ti bars. Any thoughts?



British build for sure! Will look great.

Rc30 are the nuts, but a pair of ritchey projects on this would be very nice indeed

Yes, bargain and if i had some spare cash i would of had it.

Some Tange forks would look good and you could run XC Pro hubs also, i suppose it depends on what you have at hand and how quick you want it up and running.

Starting its own thread with plenty of pics of course, would be great too 8)
