A few weeks back I bought this one... I was looking for an elated chainstay frame when this popped up on 'marktplaats'. It was spec'ed as a downhill bike with a much-to-long-travel RockShox Psylo and lots of other stuff I don't like. So... building started..
I'm not building it into a full period correct bike, since it has to be a rider for my girl friend and a bit of comfort should be in it.
The Manitou EFC has the right colours in it, so that will take care of the front while riding. Not as 1991 as the frame is, but okay for now..
The built will be XT all over.. more like the 1992 spec's
Here are the plans:
Frame: Rocky Mountain Cirrus
Fork: Manitou EFC
Headset: XT 1 1/8 threaded
Handlebar: Easton carbon for now
Brakes: XT 734 low profile canti's
Brake/shift Levers: XT 095
Front Derailleur: XT 735
Rear Derailleur: XT 735
Derailleur/brake lines: black ones
Cassette: XT 7 speed 12-28
Chain: shimano HG91
Cranks: XT 730
Chainrings: shimano 'something' ( 46-36-28 ) perhaps
Bottom Bracket: don't know yet
Pedals: Onza HO
Hub Skewers: shimano XT 730-732
Hubs: XT 730 + 732
Rims: black ones (forgot about the brand)
Tubes: Air B
Tyres: don't know yet
Saddle: Ritchey 'comfi' WCS
Seatpost: Syncros I hope
Bottle Cage: to carry a bottle
Here are some pic's of the frame. When it came in and how it's now with the sticker set of Gil.
Today the rear mech came in. Yesterday a Syncros stem in the wrong size came in (should have been for 1 1/8, but it has a 1 1/8 quill, so fits a 1 1/4... FOR SALE now).
