Yeh maybe the rasta take too much away from the beauty of a frame?

Still i recon with a set of matching cow fork and a cow saddle it would still be great 8)

Is that a Precision derailleur? I have a red one installed on my bike. I think the travel of the fork is right too.

Here's a pic of my Precision: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/mai ... emId=90115

I do have a scrape or two on it now though

Righto, unsurprisingly for me The Build Spec has changed.. The Rasta ain't workin'.. And neither are those HED wheels.. Or White Porcs.. In fact.. Nothing works for me :lol:

So, I'm going stock M900 XTR, XMax with Ano Green detailing :twisted: It may be that all my IFs end up looking the same.. But if it makes me happy, it can't be that bad :wink:

When I was looking, Rasta gear wasn't easy to come by. Granted, you have a larger Retro MTB following, it would seem, on your side of the pond so that people can deal directly w/ eachother. If I ever get over there, depending on economy & my job circumstances, I'd like to meet-up w/ some of you fellers & talk about Retro MTB's. :)

BTW- my mechanics over here told me that I was going to have nothing but problems w/ my Retro gear & they were mistaken. Haven't had to adjust my Precision derailleur once since initial installation & I've put many miles on it including some crashes. It's still in tune & all the fittings are tight :p

Matt, that's ace, glad you stuck with the original paint.

Think you should stick with the black anno trick bits, wheels and white porcs :D

I feared a Temporary Ban if I'd sent it to Argos Racing :wink:

This build poses a real Dilemma..

So..

I got all this NOS M900 kit and a lurvely TripleVGC set of XMax, shoe'd in my favourite Rubber.. But.. The frame is looking very used next to all the new kit :roll: I gotta get over this OCD [which is endemic to RetroBike Building] and build the thing! Gimme some help Brothers..

Anyways, development wise, had some 1" SIDs converted back to 63mm and serviced by TFT.. They are getting a custom spray [white] and some nice IF Logo decals 8)

Keep the NOS stuff for another one and source some used stuff. Definitely the right direction with M900 though 8)
