The Troy spanker's klein attitude is now in France !
Many thanks to him : he shipped the bike with 1992-93 XTR parts, and the original shimano XT parts. I prefer to respect the bike as it was in 1990.
First picture : pictures when I received the bike (only for laughing)

For evolution :
the american classic seatpost my friend Brusque has forgotten to give me.
Perhaps a titanium seatpost…
A 1990 cookbros crank…
:D

Very nice piece and in Flawless condition! It's a 13.5 inch frame right? :)
By the way would you care to part with any of the m900 components?

It's a 18" sized frame !
But, the good news for me, the 1990 18" was 54cm for the level tube.
In 1991, the length was 56cm ! So, I had chance to have this bike : it's really my size Itseems a 15" frame ! :D :shock:
For the M900 parts, The rear mech is for another bike. Brusque who had received the bike in France, ahs kept the M900 cantilevers. It was a dael between us
