You ever one of those afternoons when you have an important bike project and in the midst of the build (low and behold) another project comes up?
That’s what happened yesterday.
I had resigned myself to completing my Yeti ARC disc upgrade and was a couple hours into it when next thing I know my attention disorder kicks in and I pulled out a project that has been sitting idle for almost two years.
I think I even started a thread on it a while ago.
Anyways…a couple years ago I obtained a locally owned 92 Zaskar LE which had been poorly upgraded over the years. The bones however were great. I started the stripping and decaling process and elected to go with a complete M900 build. The fork choice completely stumped me as I didn’t want to go with a RockShox Fork. So…it sat while other projects came up (Namely Fat Chances)
Fast forward to yesterday. I had this crazy Cane Creek Cronos wheelset on my Sons first 26er. (I have since moved him onto a more subtle bike befitting a ten year old.) I noticed the Zaskar decals (Thanks Gil) matched the cane creek wheels and were a nice shade of SID blue. So I installed the wheels and the glow in the dark tires.
After sitting there for a few minutes I went back into the shed & pulled the Sid off the nail (This is the same Sid that I tried to peddle off here last summer.) Next I removed the XTR headset and installed a Sid Blue Race Face headset and grabbed my coveted USPS saddle. Next came the Sid Blue Race Face Turbines and Blue SRP Dust Cover. Finally I pulled out a couple Ringle Water Bottles. (How on earth did I amass this collection of SID blue?)
Then……. sitting there looking at this monstrosity…. I remembered my local bike shop had a unique selection of Ourys. A quick call to them to confirm that they had my color in stock and off I went.
After..... Pardon the incomplete( and non period correct) build.
This is just for fun.
Sucker for ano!
