Hi folks,

Here at last I´m building up my first mtb again, a Trek 930.
In all honesty I´m setting it up for my brother-in-law.
So I´ll use mostly the original components, with some nice stuff that I have lying around.
I´ll set-up a list in time, but for now I´ll just put up some pics.
And you know by now, I really like to put up pics :)

The crucial thing was I had to change the headset. I´ve found a LBS at long last, who´s quick, good at what he does, and cheap :wink:

Here´s a pic to see how it would look with wheels again.

Today I only had time to take a pic when I´d picked it up.

I already think this will look and ride pretty good.
Was there ever a spring option for the RS Indy forks?

Time to go, see more progress tomorrow!

is that really as late as 97? i thought they were doing the matt/frosted paint in 95ish. really like that paint finish.

Yep, it´s a ´97. I think the giveaway is the trek-logo that changed for ´97.
Yeah, I too like the color :)

Almost there, just got to buy brakecable for the front brake

Yes, it´s a frosted surface. It´s a really cool paintjob.
I looks really nice still 8)

It´s finished now.
Everything is kosher, except the saddle.
It´s because my brother-in-law can start using the bike without too much ass-pain :lol:

Take care
