"christ is that the time " cuts to scene of bleary eyed bloke with black hands surrounded by mucky rags and a very shiny zaskar frame all except for one bit that needs more work
Pretty much how it happened, can't get the black stuff out from under my finger nails. It's probably bad if I admit to trimming the nails shorter than normal to prevent this though right?
OK couple of parts questions.
Well first up, I "accidentally" bought some forks on evilbay (perils of bidding whilst walking in hail on a slippy pavement) and I'm not even sure if they'll fit. Rock Shox Judy SL yellow
. I'm sure I recall the SL's coming on the Zaskar LE at some point? I'm not too bothered about keeping the build absolutely retro and true to it's heritage but I'd like to avoid super modern parts if I can. So the Judy SL, from what I've found they are spring as opposed to elastomer in my XC (which are missing bits anyway) but will they fit and be any good
Next up, brakes. I currently have cantilever ones but was going to get v-brakes or prefarably hydraulic rim brakes? Back in the day I used to get brake envy when I saw the luminous yellow magura hydraulic stuff, there seems to be plenty of HS33 yellow
ones on evilbay and I'll check the FS section here too but will it fit, is it any good? Also, I've seen HS33 and HS33 Race Line? Differences?
Bottom bracket. I've not removed this and since there seemed to be some play in it will be getting a new one, anything to watch out for, non-standard size or any better than others?
