I didn't think they existed. Seriously, I NEVER see them for sale. That ranks second on the unicorn list.

Up until this one surfaced, nobody knew a 22" existed. Myth has it, there might be one more....but that's just a daydream and whispered riddles.

Thats interesting in 22".....quite like the extra triangle in strange sort of way.

Anyway back to 'MY' thread :wink: Decals fitted at weekend, and some True Temper bars delivered....these are some found on eBay and pretty poor cosmetic condition, I've got some others coming in better colour/condition so plan to refurb these.......might end up with a stockpile of TT bars but at least I'll have options :D

Looking forward to this build, do you have an Accutrax to go with it or are you going with something else? I also picked up one about 8 months ago and have almost finished sourcing the parts I need.

I just hope you dont walk down the same shimano 730 fast exit lemming lane. Build something new/different ... And please speare us for the violence-violet bling bling :-)


I would like to try something different, but I do love the turquoise/ fluro yellow combo so forks/stem are going this route. Component wise I'm hunting for stuff as we speak, want to go with top end stuff of the time but do have a load of Deore and XT stuff in stock so we may have to let the fate of Ebay decide......lets just say if its tasty and from the early 90's I'm bidding on it!!

Shabby True Temper bars.......not sure if going fluro yellow along with forks & bars is too much so may refurb to black for some contrast?

I got a NOS A-tac still in the original box wrapped in plastic with hanger.... sad thing is that it is 1" - but hey no problem. My new Pro FRO is with 1 1/4 fork, I just had a friend of mine to make a shim to make a 1" A-Tac fit the 1 1/4 fork and used a grip nut from a old steel quill.
