Hey Sinnerman, when i first got the Zinn i rode it quite a bit then realised it deserved to be rode occasionally and pampered the rest of the time
It rides really well..like a road bike on knobbies!
Ive managed to source out some NOS kit for it including a Rohloff SLT-99 chain and a set of Iccarus cables.
The tyres have been replaced with NOS Bajas and i also have just recieved a almost new Turbo Lite saddle.
Ive serviced all the bearings and replaced all the grubby bolts with stainless ones.
All i need to do now is get some piccies done
I must agree totally, it really does have a road bike feel to it, low, light and very agile..., its the closest i have ridden to a road bike offroad, with out it being a cyclecross bike...(does that make any sense...
I have ridden mine most days untill my daughter got poorly again, but its been a month at least since i have ridden mine, and to be truthful i am going to need a new rear block very soon, im quite heavyset, and the blocks defo on its way out.....
i may well replace the chain on mine too, i still think its the o/e chain that was fitted since new, so it must be time.
I do clean my bikes down before hanging them back up after a ride, and it does worry me, that i might end up flying ass over tit, and scratching it (which would gut me) but i enjoy it too much for it to be hung up and not ridden.....but i do try to be very carefull not too take silly lines on the trail, when im rideing her.
I shall look forwrd to seeing your pics, with all the new goodies fitted, i bet shes looking sensational....!!!
(sorry for refering to the zinns as females, but it just seems proper somehow...
