OK, just read my post above and thought maybe I should have given my answers to the questions I posed
I will have my trusty old 94 Stumpjumper in blood red (with white undercoat and rust streaks from all the scrapes and gauges)
I have built it with as much stuff as I had lying about. The frame gets built up every know and again in a different guise. It is just about finished and ready to go as singlespeed Stumpy with rigid NOS Stumpy forks (thanks Kai).
It has some deore/Mach 1 race wheels 2000ish so a bit modern but nice.
NOS red Specialized team bars, NOS old style Specialized bar ends, S works stem. LX cranks with 32 middleburn front ring and a 16 rear cog. XT bear trap pedals. XT V brakes front and rear with XT levers. I thought of running xc pro cantis but reality states the V's will stop me better. NOS Storm control skinwalls front and rear on the way. Surly tensioner. NOS prolong saddle but waiting on a seatpost, more than likely a tioga.
The only things I have had to get specifically are the tensioner, front ring, chain and unfortunately due to losing/misplacing the old one, a new seatpost.
I would really like to have had it repainted in pearlescent white with my S works cranks fitted. Think finances/other things happening will stop this happening and also changing cranks means getting another front ring.
work in progress
Carlsberg dont build Singlespeeds but if they did.......they would probably look just like mine.
I've spent half my life on bikes.........the other half I wasted
