Hi, found your post on the MCM 990. Nice bike you have! I have a chance at a NOS frame, and was wondering a couple of things:
Still pleased with it?
Holding together well?
Is your RC50 hub sold/available for sale?
Is it a top pull top swing front shifter? (quite rare I believe)
Have you ever ridden an early GT STS/LTS? If so, how does it compare?
Well the sparks back with the old retro bike thing, maybe not as retro as some other bikes but I love it and am sooo excited as I have been looking for one for years and finally got my mitts on one. Bit of a better spec than the original CM990 as its got a xtr chainset, XTR rear hub and pace front hub and Marzocchi Bomber airs and a few other bits and pieces.
I'm going to replace the XTR chainset with with my cook brothers F crank and think my hope titanium BB will fit so that will also be being stuck in. Also bombers are going to get replaced with my Pace 36 Evo's? ones with gold stanchions, may have already got some carbon bars to swap with the easton ones on it as well. I'm going to try and go with a carbon and gold theme so all my old red bits need to go. Oh and also need to get rid of the rockshox super deluxe for a air shock.
On a side note does anybody know what the QR's are they just have a R symbol on them, and also anyone know what the cassette is or is there anyway of me finding out?
Anyway here's some pics, I'm soooo excited yaaaay!!!
