I stopped and started watching on Ebay several times, I didn't really want another project, but one of these in my size won't crop up often, strangely the '88 brochure seems to say it should have 24 inch wheels for a 15" frame, but whatever.
Cold in the garage so cleaned up some of the bits in the kitchen whilst everyone is out.
Front wheel, bearings stripped and cleaned, spinning nice, seemed to be just old grease gumming them up, had to be careful of the seals as the bearings are cassette but all has worked well.
Waiting on a freewheel remover (thought I had seen the last of them!) then will clean up the rear bearings, not sure on freewheel yet, probably will be Sunrace ( it has a Shimano at the mo )
BITD I ran a Sachs freewheel with Deore mech and Suntour X1 shifters and all seemed fine although now I see it shouldn't index properly, we will see, using friction isn't a problem if necessary.
I would like a pair of 2.2 Hardpack's but the Ritchey's will be fine.
The groupset has cleaned up nice too
The Rollercam for the back is nos XCD, still waiting for that.
It's all a couple of years too new and possibly a bit posh for a 'hopper but I like it!
