So 3 failed attempts to build and keep a Zaskar have passed me by, but this time I know I have almost all the nice bits I need, to get it built the way I want.

Bought from Ringo recently, it's a 96 frame, fitted with 93 decals, in very good shape indeed. I'd forgotten just how FAT the downtubes on these were. :shock:

Pics (Ringo's, not mine) of the bare frame..

Interesting ....

What size did is it?

I always found the 18'' too short in the TT and the 21'' to long in the ST.

They did a 19'' but they don't seem to come up very often :-(

The 19" is rarer than rocking horse...


For some reason tho, A GT 18" (which this is, btw) seems to fit me perfectly with a 130mm (ish) stem.. Just feels right for my body shape..
