Hi,

As an early X-mas present I bought myself a Scott Endorphin 1997 frame in size M. :xmas-big-grin: Received it yesterday.
Frame is cleaned today and looks quite ok. Inspected for cracks and none found. Could use a respray and new logo's as these are faded during all those years. Cable guides have some minor corrosion, but can be cleaned up.
Not sure if I will go for a period correct retro rebuild or a more 'modern' 1x9 setup. This will depend on availability and pricing of the retro parts. Do have a Pace RC36 EVO2 that will be fitted, just because it looks right.
Does anyone of you know which bracket axle size/threads are needed for this frame?

Best regards,

Juergen

Nice 8)

Looking forward to seeing this come together


Mike Muz has one of these and I'm sure he'll be along to answer your question shortly.

The fork steerer looks a bit short on yours. Looking forward to progress :xmas-cool:

Hi,

Thanks for the info. The steerer tube is indeed short, but I have a spare one which is long enough 8) . Headset will be removed as it is not complete.
Like your design and colour. Thinking of painting mine in deep dark blue. Did you get the placards/logo's from GilM?

Scott did them in a nice dark metallic blue! :xmas-cool:

I took the frame to the local graphics shop. Really helpful. We measured up the originals and style and went from there.

Normally go to Gil though

Merry X-mas! :xmas-wink:

Mike

I went after a couple of Endorphin frames a while ago, but didn't win either and had rather forgotten about them.... until now.
