Rats, I've done it again and bought another early 90's mtb frame :roll:

Provided it wings its way safely through the post I now own a Trek 8500 Easton Alloy 20" frame in Black with white fleks. A wee bit battered, so I'm hoping its not yet another MacRetro needing welded special. I'll try and post a pic using either of the methods kaiser and Gaz instructed me in, but Flikr is not allowed on my work PC so it'll have to wait until later.

Thus Kaiser, I no longer need the frame you have but I think I have something you may want, I'll PM you.

This site is an addiction as bad as hard drugs :roll:

Cheers

Thats the frame, I do not think I can be bothered stripping it and the shiny obsession is not one I share.

If I was to strip the paint, what method do you guys use ?

I'll probably apply a little black enamel to the chipped bits and give it a wax polish instead of a strip down to the bare alloy.

I hope there are no cracks and I hope the dead frame syndrome ie no spring, is not apparent.

Other than that I'll get some rigid forks and SS it up :D

Cheers Guys

Also the itinerary for Dalby has now been posted on the site.

nitromores and lots of it- then brillo then brasso then rub a dub dub.

The bike would look cool- go on you know you want to :wink:

Should make a nice lightweight racer, very nice.
