Picked this up recently from Wold Ranger as a frame and fork (and a few other bits!), I've put some of my stuff on but we are not quite ready to roll yet.

The frame is beautiful and nicely ticked the Dedacciai box, as I've always wanted something with this tubing.

I still need a front mech, chain, pedals and a better rear wheel to get it rideable. You'll note the extensive use of M739 - my fave gruppo. I know it's not period correct but it's what I had in!

Anyway here's some pics of current state, I'll pop some more up when it's done.

Nice that. I too love 739, it was just released as I got into mtb's proper.

Agree totally on the stem Casper - but i need a long stem on this and that's all I had in.

If i could find a similar length black Salsa one... :D

That bike's a beauty.

I've sent you a PM about a stem I have that I think would look perfect on it.

That stem was nice... but I've gone for a subtle Ti number (Cheers Ian). Pics in a bit... Pewter Renthal, Ti stem and X-lite stubbies fitted... White outers...

Rear wheel is black LX (pending something exotic at a later date). You wouldn't believe how filthy it was before I cleaned it up!

Thats is just the right red rich.

Looks like that will be one fast machine.

The mix you have is great and the S.I.D.s go really well. :D
