Hello!

Bought the frame+fork last week on ebay.co.uk :wink:

Just some quick photos with the wheels and some other parts. I'm just waiting for the DX front derailleur, a silver and straight seatpost and the orange cables from china...

The photo isn't really actual, because I've also changed the bar (now a silver one with more bend to be a little bit more comfortable :roll: ) and the bar ends (now old black models like the syncros). I hope you like it ....

Best wishes from the 12°C cold austria, stoppi

Very nice condition looks a good purchase. What brakes are you fitting to it. Is that the force 40 still on the frame?

Hi Bart and Bruce!

Bart, your frameset is waiting in the huge parcel, ready to go.... :wink:
Have you been interested in the cannondale too? I made the seller an offer (130 pounds including shipping to austria) and he agreed.

Bruce, the condition looks on the photo a little bit better than in reality but considering the age I'm satisfied; just few marks and places with new paint... The canti hangers are the original ones but I replaced the rear hanger against a simple diacompe hanger because the adjustment was very tricky and not satisfying... The brakes are BR-M734 from shimano, so the xt-version.

Cheers Christoph

That's nice. I bet it'll look smart once the build is complete. Always love those Pepperoni forks & 3.0 frames.
