Very nice 8)

I am building a 98 Cinder cone and going to do a slightly lighter green (I think could still be sky blue or cream yet :lol: )

Just out of interest what bars are you running please :?: :D

nice frame, always fancy myself a 853 framed bike. what was the reason for the respray - rust or pers. choice ?

nice groupset too and obviously in a perfect nick - btw. check the position of the rubber gaitor for the RD :wink:

When i purchased the frame it had a custom respray by Argos cycles, with genuine decals and owners race name and sponsor decals.

unfortunetly it was tatty, with scratches and marks all over it, so i had the frame check for alignment before getting it powder coated.

NOS M950/52 Groupset I had shipped from China (7 years ago ebay)

Wheels laced by CRC

Ive also got a M950 Front mech to go with it

I snapped the Syncros Seat Post and replaced it with a similar cheaper tioga (couldnt find and 27.0 posts at the time)

In fact originaly it had Ritchey WCS Bars, Stem And Post but i changed to Syncros gear

I built the Bike aprox 7 years and its been my everyday hack ever since
