Seat is really cool,too new, I would totally use it anyway. I should never have sold mine
Thanks for the comments / interest guys, the seat is marked as being made in 96 so you're right it does push the boundries a little on a 92/93 built frame
T.B.H my build has ended up in a place that I never envisaged when I set out, primarily for two reasons. [a] It has to be a rider,
and whilst I can never be accused of rushing things I don’t want to miss another summer looking at it, whilst I sit indoors endlessly scouring the web, although I will continue to re-fine my build. [b] Me
Having bolted on some earlier period parts I discovered I actually don’t feel much love for a lot of pre 93 kit and my heart lies in a small window between 93 and 96, to me that era means Ringle stem, Xrays and latterly Judy MK1’s, and Sunset rims amoungst other things.
I accept that by 96 3DV was rapidly going out of fashion but hey I’m blurring the lines a little.
I’m planning to rid it at Mayhem this year on it, hence one of the reasons why its sitting on expendable Pulstar hubs, I really don’t want to trash or risk my Ringle ones as its taken an eternity to find a 32h pair to lace to my Sunsets, and even then Nick Jones (Elite 504) had to rebuild the freehub.
The 36h are destined for a some Mavic 231CD should I have a change of heart and go back to M2 and Answer Stem ...and None of these will be Snowflaked (promise)
I’ve a plan for the Grafton crank problem in so much as I’ve a second hand unit that’s off to be re-Anno’d so I can have a matching pair that actually work, in the mean time the Silver ones are my only option.
I’ll post a few pictures up later once I’ve got my “bling” wheels back from being trued up at my L.B.S,
