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.
