So this bike that got used as a donor for my rocky mountain, not to be built as 3 xc full sussers is a bit excessive
so far it sits as a frame, forks, headset, stem, bars, front brake, front and rear mech, chainset, bb, seatpost, seat clamp, seat, grips...
I have a feeling it will be making a return to being whole again ;)

well, for a bike that "isn't getting built....blah blah blah"
it is starting to look like a build project again...
i recently got a Raceface headset from Jamabikes on here, which made perfect sense to go to it's spiritual canadian home of my rocky mountain.
that freed up the hope headset once again for sitting in a drawer... nah, let's put it on the specialized!
ohm, there's a hope brake here too... ooh a saddle... and this chainset/bb isn't doing anything.
oh yes the single speed saracen, that had some shifters....
ooh an X-Lite stem and some riser bars
here we go again
