The nice thing of your frame size is that the bottom tube is parallel to the rear tubes, like a parallelogram. It looks awesome ! Do you have wheels yet ? Like to see a picture of it standing on wheels !


On its wheels (although lacking to the soon to be purchased smoke and darts :twisted: )

93 Zaskar BB shell width is definitely 73mm unless someone took a BB facer to it and reduced it to 68. Ian please level the saddle :D

How much travel you have in that fork? What's the axle to crown? Looks like it's laying that frame back quite a bit...maybe too much, may wind up putting to much stress on the bottom of your down tube. Have seen a number of the early Zaskar's fail/crack because forks with too much travel were put up front. Best if you can keep it to 405mm or less axle to crown on those older frames.

Fork travel is 100mm iirc - could be wrong on that though.

Don't have anything handy to measure the axle to crown at the minute, have to try and remember to get a tape measure this week to check it.

My frame number is also 0893 with 94 decals so as previously
stated this one would probably have been manufactured August, built up
and shipped ready for next year.

94 Decals

Done a lot of polishing since this, these decals seemed to look better when it was dull.

PS the decals in your first pic are they 93, cos I really like them. Fancy some for mine.

Forks will likely be changed but I want to finish it off before I start re-buying bits !
