what year was the first 1/8 ahead


Stand to be corrected by virtually everybody but I'd say '93 they went from 1" to 1 1/8", could be '92. Ask Al


I bet it's about then. The one on the ebay could be 91/92. It's not 1990 as it would have splatter paint like mine!

From about 1996 onwards the geometry will take 80mm of suspension at the front as well so that may be worth considering...

And you could always go ali :wink: like the Scots :roll:

id consider anything 14-18 :lol: they all have long enough top tubes and seattube length is less of a concern for me

ive seen the catalogue for that pink hannah and its a 91 . 90-95 would suit me fine . wont be using suspenders , its cheating and if i wanted to cheat id just use the blue dmr

so far i have cranks . tyres and ive just remembered i got some magnesium pedals then forgot about them

It's gold with red Kona lettering. It's running a Project 2 fork, XTR V's, Avid levers, basic Truvative crank, red DMR pedals, red raceface stem, raceface bars, Use titanium seatpost, XT and Parralax wheels (original i think) and a set of Onza Porcs. Singlespeed with Gusset tensioner. It's running 32:18 at the mo (like I do) which sound like it would have been spot on for Dalby.

It's an old pic, different crans and pedals...but there you go!

It's a sweet bike and I almost bought it...still want it!

I'm 90% sure it's an explosif cos of the tapered/fluted down tube but you can never be sure.

Her is a a picture of it from about a year ago...

If you bought it and were stripping it first dibs on the XTR V's and the wheels!!!

He might strip it himself and just do the frame....

Vulture, me? :lol:
