Currently building this up, trying to use period bits...Ok I know its not exactly retro, but in some ways its harder to find 98/99 stuff.
Its coming on quite nicely.....I am thinking about changing the bars to some black ones, and also perhaps the CK headset.
Obviously its missing a c/set, I did have a m739, but decided that it needed something later...maybe a m750/1 or perhaps a period Raceface one....( hints/help on that would be appreciated.
Saddle is a more modern WTB, but I do have a SST.K...its just not as comfortable TBH.
Oh, and due to carpal tunnel syndrome I have also made a concession with the grips.
