Regarding the BB threads, BETD can machine out the old threads and fit an insert back to the correct thread size. Looking forward to seeing build photos though :)

I cross my fingers thatbthe Italian threads will be good now that the bb don't have to be tighten so hard any more as it don't carry the boomerang. But it is good to know that betd does this stuff. Could come in handy.

Hey Yetidh9. This is one of the Original Team Global bikes that belonged to Greg Minnaar. Its pretty as stock as when it was used with the exception of the pedals, upper crown and tyres. It needs a little TLC but i hope this will help in finding the images you are looking for.

Hot damm it is nice! And as you say pretty close to factory spec. As I see tyres are wrong (need michelings c22) but otherwise just as it should be.

The electric red boxxer looks really good on it. I so much need such a fork for my own.

Is it your bike? And if so let me hear more about the story of how you got it etc!

Hi Yetidh9

I know I have not been on the forum for some time to answer your question. I got the bike through Gregg many years ago, I know him through racing as I used to be on the South African mountain bike team. But for Cross Country only. I bought the bike because I just wanted to partake in some minor downhill races. But given the constraints of the current work life. this is now not possible. I need your advice on this bike. As have not ridden it in about 2 years, what do you feel I can sell it for?
