So sorry this build is taking so long i am almost there :oops:

All i have left to purchase is Seat post clamp, inner tubes gear cables, oh and some little odds and ends.
I have just bought a pair of shwalbe racing Ralph's tyres (silver stripe) and Richey Wcs ergo foam grips to keep more weight off.

I have read quite a lot of negative reviews with regards to Crank Brothers products. I have bought a pair of silver Egg Beaters, time will only tell how robust they are.
I will be putting the bike together in one hit so i can't show you any pics of my progression.

It's killing me, i want to start it now. ARHHHH. :twisted:

C'mon, c'mon, we need pics! Trying to imagine the finished build - looks as though the Superstar blue and the decals are going to be the perfect match. I had a late '98 Muni (like the polished catalogue pic over the page but in gloss royal blue with '99 style decals). I'd love another but 14"ers don't come up too often :(

I have decided to make a start. Had to put in some more polishing time though. :oops:

The decals look great, Thanks for the help Mike.

Sorry about the poor quality pics. Just a taster.

A fantastic build. Am currently stripping a GT alu frame at the moment. Did you follow the Nitromors instructions? I only ask because I am not getting anywhere fast!
