What is the problem you are having with the bottom bracket and the front mech :?:


It's got a 73mm BB shell and finding a square taper e-type BB is proving a big problem

I could get a Phil Wood bb to fit it but I looked into the costs and it was £130 or so before it got this side of the water. So other plans going ahead now.

Some more bits :D

Some cleaning and restoration to do yet but plenty of time for that. I also have an M950 chainset that I'm investigating refinishing to its original grey and a selection of brakes (XT/XTR Vs, Maguras) that I will be making a decision on when the time comes to it.

Also have some rather wonderful new rubber arrived. Remakes but nice all the same

Still in there for the long haul 8)

To cut a long story short, here it is in all it's glory. I'm not very good at build threads so I just prefer to let it speak for itself... (Just an iPhone shot at the moment until I get to work on Monday)

I'm not going to lie. That bike is absolute boss! Looks like it'll eat up hill for breakfast.
