Nice 8) ..glad you've found your dream bike.

Pretty sure I've got a front mech spare should you wish to run shim free, assuming you need 28.6.

Did this bike have an original spec or was a frameset only? Yours looks very "period" and very nice IMHO.

awesome, i am liking this one a lot. there certainly is always something very nice about fillet brazed frames, especially with the fastback stay arrangement.

These were offered as framesets and complete bikes. I have more-or-less nailed the original spec. XT components with DX hubs and Araya rims. Finally finished the cabling tonight so will take some nice pics over the weekend and show it off in all its glory.

Love how they route the rear brake cable through the post clamp area, sheer class.

Gorgeous build!
I can see where Jamis got the inspiration for the routing on my old Dragon now...

The two frames share some other similarities too.
