Were the mechs knackered, then? :(

I do like a bit of Suntour.

Heavily coroded/rusted. Going spare if you want them.

The cranks/chainrings will probably clean up ok so I might sell them.

Go for LX or DX from that period. Shouldn't be too hard to find!

I might have a Specialized stem in black for you. Have to check tomorrow!


Hi. Did you get a chance to look for a stem that might suit this bike?

Also in need of a better saddle if anyone has one?

Thanks. I think I have it covered now but you happen to have a specialized stem/saddle then would definatly be interested.

I'm going to break up my dawes escape (for other reasons) and their is a one inch stem on that which will do the job.

Yes, a good project this one.

Any black saddle will do, I have my eye on a spec one on e bay but will consider anything!

The next project is in the pipeline and will be a belter!!! Your brothers fault!!

Thanks to Superstu for sending me a saddle for Karma.

This whole project is for karma anyway so its nice that people have helped out.

Saddle fitted.

BTW. The seat post is as stuck as any I have seen, but its at the right height for the owner and its he that left it outside for 10+ years so too bad. I think removing it would required a lot of heat/force etc and maybe ruin the paint so that would make this simple karma rebuild from spares into a whole different project.
