Another couple of good quality dh rigs to add to the collection. Very nice to see.

Firstly I would search for the factory chain device, they were really good never heard of anyone droping a chain with one of those. If no luck I'd go modified MRP. A period correct one of course.
I remember seeing a few pro schwinn's and yeti's running them bitd.

Have to ask, are they ebay finds? they look in amazing nic.

The chain device is a bit of a tough one as when I bought the frame I knew it didn't have the specific chain device to suit it. I think trying to get one will be near on impossible and I'll have to improvise. I'd looked through my Dirt magazines and seen them run with MRP's but the back plate would need to be notched to fit around the chain stay pivot. I've no qualms over doing it but wondered if anyone could shed some light on it.

At the mo I've only got a period "slalom" (36-40) sized and might look a bit small. Need "world cup" really to fit the XTR cranks I've got.

Yes the majority are eBay/classified finds. The DHi I've owned for 3+ years and done nothing with it. The condition of these isn't as good as the others photo'd but very good for the age and type of bike they are.

No I didn't I'm afraid. Is it to fit your Lobo in your Sig? These are larger than the lobo ones, don't know if it'd fit.
