Folks been mountain biking since the early nineties but had some time out from it all around 2 years ago for around 5 years, owned all manner of bike in that time wish i'd kept some of them, been on this website for a couple of months after a mate let me have an old frame he used to race dual on back in the day.....
Its a 2000 year model Coyote dual slalom frame, not exactly retro, but i'm glad I have rear disc mounts, nothing flash about it and I dont think it was particularly expensive but he found it bomb proof and had it nicely built up at the time, to be honest I have never seen another one built up not sure if they were that popular, at the time my mate was riding this I built up a Cannondale Super VDH 3000 for racking downhill which was awesome
There are no dents or cracks just a bit tatty, the plan is to run it along side my full sus spesh, I want to build it into a good solid trail bike for blasting round the local hills (the mendips)
Single ring up front with 9 speed at the back
The plan is to get the frame powder coated in white and build it up from there, I have most parts i'm doing this on a tight budget so i'm picking bits up as I go and looking for bargains,
I'm going to cut off the 'v' brake mounts before its trip to the coaters
I have just email Gil_m with pictures of the decals as I hope to have the decals done in black
I need a few bits to finish
Tyres, not sure what to run yet but a good all round trail tyre
Disc rotors and mouting hardware
9 speed shifter
9 speed mech
5 bolt chainring/bash guard
I've built a few bikes up befoire over the years, I may get some new forks for my spesh in the summer and put some black Tora's on the Coyote but that depends on budget.
More pics to follow after poweder coating and the built up start
