FYI for a 92 you need Atek not Contax rims, those were for 91 only.

The only thing I have not been able to find a trace of are the Suntour Ti spindles, I've found nearly two of everything else, but no sign of the spindles anywhere. Not sure they ever really existed.

Let me know if you decided to not run the campa FW and want to sell it. I could use one more :)

I understand that you're not using the Campy rims at the moment. When you find some Hi-e hubs at least get the correct rims for your bike, which are Atek not Contax.

I have nearly a whole spare UL build less the Campy FW, but am saving it for a future build. I managed to find another pair of Grip Shifts, Ti spindle for the BB, hubs, rims, etc... just need another FW and some of those Suntour spindles.

OK, thanks!

Not sure which year my Adroit is, i think it's 91 or early 92, you can't check this with the framenumber?

For 92 UL i need according to the catalogue Dia Compe 987 instead of 986 and Klein Death Grips 2.1...but i like the skinwall Ritcheys more...

Your Adroit is a 92 because it has a 31.6 seatpost, the few 91s that were made had 27.2 seatpost.

Oh yah? Looked like a 31.6 at first glance.

Ok, then I take it all back. Contax rims, 986s and Ritchey tires.
