I have some XC SE in stock of course, but Dia Compe probably a bit Pimpier!

Yeah an exact month, I've noticed months and years fly by in project world!

Got this back in the stand and am determined to get it built and ridden!

Crank needs a strip down and clean + I really wanted a better rear mech but seems like mint Suntour is hens teeth these days. :roll:

Still not fully dismissed going XT instead! :facepalm: :lol:

Life gets in the way doesn’t it. Great having projects if you can find the time spare. Every-time i think I have a spare hour or so, its filled with work, Diy, family stuff or actually riding my bike! Yes Suntour can be a bit of s ball ache, to get hold of. Still coming together Ed. :)

8)

Forgot to mention I'd also sanded down and polished up the Lite Stick seatpost that was badly scored down the back.

Rear mech doesn’t look bad at all!

Yeah, it was sold as shop soiled NOS so is nice and tight but it's got the odd scuff, scratch and non original bolt so not as nice as the M735 short cage I have, which is bugging me. :facepalm: :lol:

Nice one Ed.

Looks classy on those pristine Mavic CD rims and Suntour XC pro.

Keep up the good work! :D

Cheers.
