I don't normally do build threads as I hardly have time for riding, let alone building or documenting a build, but I've been trying to get around to this one for ages, and maybe a thread will finally get me to do it!

Apologies in advance - it won't be a strictly 100% retro build. I've had the frame for years, no prizes for guessing what it is :)

frame weight is 1549g, which includes canti bosses, BB cable guide and 4 bottle cage bolts

the first thing I need to get round to is installing my 2003 hope enduro headset and head doctor. The alloy part of the crown race is cracked but I'm going to risk it (the actual steel race is OK)

quite close to the city, yes. We might be able to organise a RB ride at some point! There are a few more RBers in Spain, but none that I know if in Valencia.

I pressed the headset cups in and installed the BB this afternoon. The BB is a UN51 from BITD, still going strong so I might as well keep using it!

A parkpre with the old and new parts I can imagine quite well. :D
