Spacer was all good, fitted the BB and cranks but nothing setup yet.

i came to run the rear gear cable and the barrel adjuster is missing off the derailleur, i have half a adjuster (the metal screw part but not the spring or outer) no idea where the rest is although i don't think its correct as it only just screws in half a thread or so although it was with all the parts that came off this so not sure...whats a normal size screw barrel adjuster?

So close so might go to a local shop and get one.

I only found the plastic bit, no spring or bolt. Glad you found one.

Nice one hank.

Cheers.

Very eye catching. Frame design is similar to my gary fisher.

The forks are good quality, had a blue pair, easy to work on.

Cool, have fun.
