My retro rides which Inhave built up over the last month or so. They are not to orginal spec so please forgive me :facepalm: . I have purple Grafton Topline cranks with White Industries Titanium Phantom BB to go on one...not sure which yet.
Gil was responible for the decals on the Dynatech (which I know is probably cheeky given it is a Torus frame).
Orange decals are on there way. There are no markings on the frame and from research I have come to the conculson it is an late Vitamin T polished (one in the 93 catalogue).
Orange creaks a bit -headst needed tightening, but I think the seatpost is the wrong diameter. It came with a 27mm CrontrolTech but I suspect it should be 27.2mm. (anyone know for sure?) I've checked for cracks but can't see any. It could be the bb, but it was OK on my previous build...need to strip it down again.

My 93 Vit T is a 27.2 seatpost alright

Whats the travel on those SID's? Might be a bit much for a 93 frame.

Loving the Torus built - hint of Fat Chance about it for some reason.

Many thanks SS. I'm going to get a 27.2 and try it.
SIDs are 63mm travel (the '98 might be only 60mm) so don't think it should be problem. I have some Pace MXV (not sure exactly whoch model as stickers have cracked and come off) to rebuild which I will put on the Vitamin eventually.
