a simple no nonsense build for my youngest - not strictly retro - but as it's only six month's younger than he is, it's all relative
We have a collection of early 2000's kona and deore parts and a budget of £100 notes!
Roughed out with temp cables / grips...
the forks are Noleen (sisters?) Air from '01 (ibelieve) and are very light the frame 7005 ally and together it's fly!
Some smarter cranks and a stub stem in 'wet' white on the birthday list.
brake andm gear cabling just arrived... so to the build.
