I bought this Checker Pig from a former colleague at the bikeshop. It has a disk brake adapter with Hope C2 (putting the calliper to far off; see the wear on the disc), with Ritchey eccentric rims on Hope 5 bolt hubs.
The colour is really nice, irl it is more purple then the photos show.
The whole drivetrain has been changed to deore and LX, but I do have the original set of 9.0sl, as I bought the set from him when he changed it to 9 speed
I guess it is from around 1999 going by the original forks. It did came with decals on top of the paint bitd, but the former owner removed them.
The frame and fork are a nice base; Frame is not too heavy, good functional fork and a real nice colour together. So I am going to 'retrobike' this. Just have to find a good 'theme'.
Anybody recognizes the type and year of this Checker Pig?
