Now that IS interesting, as I have a nice set of silver controltech Bars for this (around 140g), and I like the idea of matching kit.

I thought I'd read that these stems were also around 180g? :roll:

Right... searching for a new stem... :lol:

Been having a think, and I'm going on the look out for some more period correct rims. So, Anyone have suggestions for lightweight early/mid 90s rims? I've some silver 231s that i could use, but I'm thinking 230s, or Ateks?

for period correct can't get much lighter than Atek 390 gram.

Your inner tubes are on the heavy side.

I wasn't aware of anything lighter in the Mid 90s? Any suggestions? I'm aware of modern light tubes, but want to stay period.

:cry:

Package arrived today :D

The MRC D cells off Kingaroons 'Billy.

Loverly :twisted:

I'll just wait for someone to tell me that there are lighter brakes available :lol: :lol:

One opinion I would like to hear though - The trek came with a linkage arrangement for the cantis at the rear. Do I use this, of try to fit some kind of 'normal' canti hanger?

Cool build, when I think of OCLV hardtails I think of them in this ruby Red colour. I think I recall MBi mag testing a 9800, in 94 perhaps?

Thanks Buddy. Kind words.

A little update:

I said earlier that the brakes should come in under 350g.

Image

Image

:D

Pleased with this too:

Image

I found a nice Hope Ti BB, but the axle is too narrow, so I'm on the lookout for a 127/73 BB .

And these, uncut 58cm:

Image
Might be a while before any more updates though, lots on at work, so no time to fettle.
