There seem to be so many flying around at the moment, I thought I would add this in too.

19" frame, is going to get some remedial work done to tidy it up a bit :wink: . Now I started all this a year ago with one of these and had a Suntour XC Pro/Comp dream, which was somewhat realised by HarryCrumb with his project since I binned mine, well this time it is NOS XC Pro overkill only. Gonna be a long one,

Here is what I have so far. More updates when I have more items

Cheers...Nick

I'm just about to start my build, think I'll be watching this build :wink:
You've got some lovely stuff to bolt on, how long before you start in earnest?
Oh and good luck.

Not until I have every part (NOS), and considering I have been unemployed now for 9 months, I might have bought my last piece, which happens to be this below. Granny ring to be sourced, and then all rings anodised BLACK :)

I shall be watching yours and all the other 1990 Cone projects though.

Cheers...Nick

Thats a cracking collection of NOS parts, looking forward to seeing them built up into another great bike.

Sorry to hear that Nick. Why NOS? Will you be riding this or will it take pride of place somewhere?
You've made a cracking start to it though fella and good luck with the job hunting.

This is going to be interesting to see built up :D

Well done sourcing the !" xc pro headset - bet that wasn't cheap! They are one of the best headsets around IMO - way better made than shimano, ritchey or tange offerings.

Would be interested in those xc9000 brake levers if you ever sell them. ;)

A small (possibly boring) update :oops:

NOS granny ring sorted for that lovely chainset above :)

F&F still away at the remedy centre :)

Cheers...Nick
