Thanks.

Looking forward to seeing the complete photos of the recent updates. Is it any lighter now?

Erm....thats not going to work...
You've got the nine speed for ritchey shifters, which are 8spd spacing with shimano indexing. The cassette is 8spd spacing. The rear mech is sram 1:1. So the shifters won't work with the mech. Or if you use the sram betsy shifters, you're trying 9spd indexing on 8spd spacing.

Or have i missed something? :? :?

The 1997 betsy was 8 speed fella,, :)

I ended up fitting a Ti freehub body and the cassette and the extra sprocket went on with the lockring no problem chap.. ;)

Bit of a update :)

Target weight of 20lb dead has been achieved , could have gone slightly lighter , but think this weight with suspension forks is balanced just right , more

Here's a couple for you.. :)

Thanks Jon , the sids were the logical step up from the judy's but the colour is the only thing I am unsure on,, if they stay, then more than likely , when I get the nod on the replacement frame decals and the frame goes in for respray , these will get a custom spray job to blend in a little more with the colour on the frame .. :)

wouldn t it be simpler to respray the legs of the sid in dark blue or black ? :wink:
and light blue on the frame may look a bit weird for a ritchey ?
