status quo #2

added a GT titanium bottom bracket (122.5mm), this way
the Syncros Revolution is just right. On both sides! The FC-M952
did'nt work with the BB-7700. Well, I am happy about the
Revolution too. Also, that the BB found a home. Although it
was NOS :(

Hi yidaki, that's a familiar looking bike. My old one? I can recognise some of the parts and components. What are your plans with the build? Going well...

on Friday I saw that the rear wheel war everything else than in center
so I took my truing stand and trued it. It was almost half a cm off to the
left O.o

Then I put it back and on the lower fork it looked ok:

But at the top it looks/looked like this (before truing I didn't
watch).

Image

If I turn the wheel a little bit it fits well but the rear
hub does not sit in its position (the axis does not hit the end
of the derailleur hanger). Is this a problem? :D

Not only I like it, but I absolutely LOVE it! I can't wait to see it finished!

I have two Lobos of my own, but alu 1999 models and some leftovers of one of these. Since they are not finished yet, there is no reason to write about them.

Nettes Spielzeug! ;)

Looking great bro! When are you going to put them on? Great find! Did you figure out exactly what was bent?

Thanks Maxipedia!

Still waiting for a new set of bushings I have ordered.
They should be here in a week or two. I will start disassembling
the bike and putting the parts in boxes.

I still need to find a 32H BigUn front hub since it's only a bulb on
the front. I could put my hands on silver BigUns, but red looks
IMHO much better. I could get them re-anodised though ..

I know for sure that the low arm is bent. But I will check for sure
after disassembly of the frame.
