Built this up from a new bare frame back in '94.

Used to have a nice set of Cook Bros cranks and XTR cantilevers but somebody decided they deserved them more than me and promptly helped themselves while the bike was chained up outside my local Sainsburys.

Forks were the last of the MAG series of forks before the Judys were released and they swapped back to steel stanchions from the '93 models universally disliked alloy ones.

Drivetrain is a combination of XT and XTR

Wheels built by myself and consist of:
Front
Hope Ti hub
DT Swiss stainless spokes with snowflake lacing
Mavic SBP230 rim
Alloy nipples
Panaracer Dart 2.1"

Rear
Deore LX 8sp hub
DT Swiss stainless spokes
Mavic M231 rim
Alloy nipples on non drive side
Panaracer Smoke 2.1"

Hope this is of interest to people

Nice - great frames. I have later one now, but used to ride this version a lot! Love to have another one

Quick update as it I'm sticking around. lol

Image

Forks have been swaped out for Rock Shox Tora TK with remote lockout and the MAG 21's have been cleaned up and are now hanging above my PC. lol

Brakes are now Deore XT V-brakes with Deore LX levers
Headset has been swapped for a Cane Creek aheadset
Stem swapped for a 10° rise 130mm jobbie

Took it out for a quick shakedown and it's pretty ok but my God I'm unfit.
