After quite a bit of effort ive finally finished the 96 YO. Its not one for the purists im afraid has ive gone for a different approach with the overall look and colour choice of the frameset.

Ive built this to be used! I had the SACHS Quarz drivetrain stuff back in 96 so ive gone for it on this build. Still trying to find a SACHS Quarz 8 speed cassette, but when i do it will be added. Ive still yet to fit a beautifull TI bottom bracket too, with green lockrings 8)

This thing weighs 22lbs! It should roll along nicely. Better picks to be taken by someone with skill & will be added later on.

anyone have a spare green ano RINGLE moby 29.4 im interested.

I owe a lot of thanks to my colleague who really knows how to fix up dented and well used steel pipes!

And also large thanks to all the people who sold me bits and answered my wanted ads on here.

Yes id love to find a Ringle seatpost in green but quite rare especially in 29.4.

I put a wanted ad on here for a green seatpost quick release and ive tried all the usual places :facepalm:

The build is far from finished! I just got a little eager and built it. I want a Sachs 8 speed cassette and matching chain.

Thanks for the feedback folks :D
