Well, the Maguras were ditched so I could run some decent tyres again.
The BB has been replaced and the bike received a set of NOS chainrings. That allowed me to configure it for 3x7 again. So on went the second thumbie and a front mech.
I have a set of 1.95" Schwalbe City Jets with amberwalls on order, so for now I put it on my old Bontragers. Those make it look like a fatbike really ...

Yes, those are full slicks and wet cobblestones. Sometimes it's the simple things that make life exciting. :twisted:

Pretty sure this is the final incarnation for now

... but then again maybe I'll have it painted to sort out the rust.

Not sure about the colour yet. The decals are not available anymore and way too difficult to replicate, so there's little point in sticking to the original colour.
I'm thinking about going either gloss black or the satin dark grey of the rims.

Looks really good considering it's age and with what you've changed on it and i'd have it painted the same as the rims or maybe even carbon dipped :shock: ..

Have I worn out my welcome now or do I have to try even harder?
I could always attach the trailer to the Sbike or get me an Adroit for towing duties. :twisted:



and now I'm wondering if there are skinwalls in 16" and how it would do off-road.

Nice find RB ,

I do like a nice Scott , pleased you managed to find the one you were looking for . I like those tyres too 8)

Good work GT Steve :wink:

FWIW I think stick to original paint and patina . That's what I'm doing to my current project

I decided to tackle the rust with a quick repaint, and as usual that plan snowballed right out of control. The frame had to be repainted a couple of times and then Gil was on holiday and I had to source some components still, so the bike ended up in pieces for 4.5 months.

Lots of shiny new stuff, but now my cabinet of NOS parts is getting empty

I just love the looks of that BB. Hopefully it lasts a bit longer than the UN55s that preceded it.

The headlight gave me a bit of a scare. Turns out Cateye put the C-cell batteries in the light already BITD. So as soon as I opened the packaging and felt the weight of the new headlight itself, I thought "oh damn, if those batteries leaked it's either going to be a mess to clean up or the entire headlight is going to be ruined".
Fortunately I only had to pull out the plastic strip and the light turned on just fine. So for now I'm still on the original batteries.



Specs :

    Frame : 1994 Scott Mohaka, 16"
    Forks : original
    Stem : original
    Headset : Shimano XT M736 - was NOS
    Bottom bracket : Shimano BB-M730 68x122mm - was NOS
    Crankset : Shimano XT FC-M730 (non-biopace) - was NOS
    Front mech : Shimano XT FD-M735 28.6 bottom pull - was NOS
    Rear mech : Shimano XT RD-M735 long cage - was NOS
    Shifters : Shimano XT SL-M732 thumbies - were NOS
    Brake levers : Shimano XT BL-M732 2.5 finger - were NOS
    Cantilevers : Shimano XT BR-M734 - were NOS
    chain device : Shimano XT Shark Fin - was NOS

    Front light : Cateye Halogen HL-500BS - was NOS
    Rear light : Cateye TL-LD260BS - was NOS
    Computer : Cateye Mity3

    Cassette : modern HG50 7-speed : 12-28
    Chain : modern HG50
    Pedals : no idea, had these for years. Alloy body, serviceable bearings, they're good really.
    Handlebar : Uno 560mm
    Seat Post : generic alloy 350 x 26.0mm
    Seat : Selle Italia Flite 1990
    Wheels : for now some generic hubs with Rigida ZAC2000 36h rims. I did source some NOS M730-732 hubs in 32h and 135mm, so I should be able to rebuild my old wheels (on Ambrosio CC-22 Competitione rims) soon. I like the look of these rims tho and may keep using them until they're worn (which shouldn't be too long, I ride it about 4K miles per year so this is no garage queen).
    Tires : Schwalbe City Jet 26 x 1.95 blackwall.


I bought the bike for £35 a little over 4 years ago. Not sure how much I put into it right now, don't care either.

I have one of those Cateye headlights in the drawer. With a fresh set of cells, you should just about be able to make out your front tyre. :P
