Lets try to be diferent :) :lol:

Its just a test to the colour and while everything that I "wish" is not available or on the garage :)

My Syncros Seatpost Titanium is still on is way due to a small issue but on the Box comes also another Stem with Zero Rise so its should look better that way ;)

I can see that not too many people enjoyed the Green tyres :oops:

Any way and finally some changes on the way.

The Syncros Ti Seatpost is fitted and another Stem now with Zero rise ;)

I have a set of Onza Ti Bar Ends on the way and a probably a Ti bar to give it a try, not sure how it will look after that.

I´m still not very expert on this Retro perfect builds or what should be the best parts to fit sutch a fine frame but I like to try diferent things or make diferent builds so open to opinions.

Hey retro folks,

Here's my 99 Xizang with M950 XTR bits.

This photo is a bit old but is mostly still the same, well the steerer tube has been chopped down further, different stem installed and that fugly bike computer which shouldn't have been there in the first place has gone.

The forks have been destroked to 80mm but really don't look it.

Anyhow, here's the Zanger....
