Rather than start a new thread for my other Toad, I'll make this my Toad build thread.
Back in 2008 by chance I saw that Jez had his black Toad for sale and so given that I'd been looking for one for ages I grabbed it as quick as I could.
It was previously owned by a mtbr member and I'd say its been through a few owners before that too. After a bit of research I'd led to believe its either a 92 or 93 frame. Anyway it like the green one has been well used but the original black powder coat is in reasonable condition and so I'm going to leave it.
Normally I don't start actual building of a bike until I have everything for the build, but as this is getting close and there has been a bit of focus on Toads of late I've started doing a bit of work on this one as I'd like to get it finished over the (Australian) winter in time for spring.
So here's a photo pretty much as I received it (derailleur added later).
The build for this one is going to be mostly black and silver with small bit of blue and so far I have the following:
Headset: logo less King in turq
Stem: Syncros 1" threadless
Seatpost: Syncros ti
Cranks: Syncros Revolution
Fork: Manitou 3 with 1" crown/steerer
Derailleurs: M900 XTR
Shifters/Brake levers: M900 XTR
Hubs: M900 XTR
Brakes: Machinetech canti
Saddle: Flite Ti in blue
Bars: Either Syncros flat bar in black or blue Hyperlite (will see how they both look).
A progress shot should be up after the weekend
