Thought I would start off a thread for this and it may help encourage me to build it up quicker.

Purchased off here a rather nice 18" (Centre to top) year 2000 stumpy frame..

Thanks :D

I want to be able to ride it asap so will be fitting a mix of m750/952 with some decent FS.

Eventually I would love some blue sids and probably m952 throughout.

great frame - looking forward seeing it build - when I look at your Kili I'm sure it will be first class :wink:

may I suggest you some parts for it:

- red Manitou SX ti / or carbon fork, Mavic ceramic or Crossmax, XTR 95x will look ace and yellowish Magura HS 33 race line - plus some Titianium parts and you will have a great race bike 8)

Thought I would post a couple of pics on the slow progress made.

Sourced some Y2K red sids that I am really happy about :D Got hold of some maguras and easton monkeylite sl std bars.

I am expecting delivery of a nos xtr M952-5 chainset that is brand new in the box. It's the rarer 5arm version with 26/36/48 rings 8)

Still loads to get :roll: :lol:
