So we got our first snow fall yesterday, and low and behold I received and started yet another project. Technically this is the fourth Blizzard to come into my hands, but one came and gone quickly as I had no intentions of keeping it.

Still undecided if I should go with the Marzocchi shocks or the rigid P2s. Both go well with the build I think. Still mulling over what to place for the cockpit, but this SHOULD get completed before the other two. :lol:

Don't mind the "Hammer Race" badging on the top tube, this is indeed a Blizzard and very similar to the mystery RM frame I posted prev. Looks a lot like the colour mock ups I did when I first posted my first Blizzard on here! :shock: :lol:

yes i do believe it's a 95, as there are subtle differences from it and the mystery frame ID as a 94 frame. that being like the one you use to own that got passed on to claret73.

settled on Black Race Face Turbine IB with gold spyder matched with a Syncros Ti BB.

more black kit yet to come… ;)

not sure if the tubing decal is correct for the frame. :? for the 94 I know this would be so as it's stated in the catalogue.

Looks great so far. I'm loving the RF crank especially with that spider. I'd go with the P2s they mimic the frame tubing and lines so well. [/code]

No, the tubeset sticker is in the 1993 style, so it must be off a 1993 Equipe. The 1995 stickers were quite different, with a fist holding a wrench.

Worth noting that the Kona fork is a 1991/92 item, i.e., from the pre-suspension era with a 39cm axle to crown, and as such is shorter than the frame will have been designed for.
