I took them off and used the Ringle.


Gotta ask, how tall are you? I have been thinking about how this will fit since I got it.

I like the colour as well and its in pretty decent shape. I'll touch up the chain suck area and buff our the marks on it. Should look pretty good. I just really like those wild Grove paint jobs and its so hard to find any these days.

No paint discount ... yet. My powdercoater loves me though, and I am getting to know the chromer :lol:

Some progress ...

NOS XT headset installed with the FTW Accutrax and that’s a Peterson SE U brake.

Mock up. XT 735, IRD post, Grafton Cranks, NOS Ti Vetta SL, NOS Campy/XT wheelset, Smoke and Dart reissues, and a stem and bar that won’t be used in the actual build.

The paint touched up pretty well and the black with the green looks nice. I had a few parts that tied the green in so that helped.

I have a Grove Mtn Stem coming for for it with some rise and length so that should help with the fit.

I just need to decide on a front brake, find a 3DV rear Ringle skewer in my parts bins, sort out a seat clamp, and slap a chain in it :)
