Alas Anthony, no saddle love from the crazy man in the shop.
Today was a good day. The chaps down at Quest smacked it about a bit and low and behold the bottom half of the headset popped out.
the work begins!
Got rojo's aheadset in. looks fantastic. I was a little worried about how wide it is, but now it's in it looks fantastic (IMO)
New cassette from bat40a6 slid on with no problems though the old one was a little bugger to get off. Question about this actually, will get part number tomorrow, but the old sugino casette is an 8-speed, 11 - 28 teeth. The one bat40a6 gave me is an 8 speed XT, but with a lot more teeth. will check and post up the details tomorrow, but the difference could cause me a whole lot of trouble, right?
found some very cheeky orange brake cable outers, so i may
stick with the v's...really not sure about this atm.
Wheels got tubes and tyres and then plonked on, along with an old Manitou fork i had lying about just to test things out, coz i couldn't resist..you know how it is. really looking forward to getting it finished.
had a bit of luck and may have got some forks, perfect for it. Saddle i'm now not sure about, but have ordered anyway and managed to possible find some matching grips..
there will be pics from the start of tomorrow and after more work some more pics
