I had the matching shorts BITD
Cool....! Would love to find a NOS pair of matching shorts..!
Pedals have arrived this morning - Shimano Deore XT PD-M731 with Mt. Christophe toe clips and straps as per the Ridgeback catalogue image:
Had a comedy moment trying to fit the straps......completely forgot how to do it!
Will be the first time I've used clips 'n straps since...ooohh.. 1992 I think...?
Also had a fiddle with the saddle and stem positioning since the pics previously shown - looks a bit better proportioned now but I'm still in favour of nabbing the stem off my 701LX and fitting that instead (the top end models all used the same stem iirc)
Koolstop pads ordered and plumping for my perennial favourite chain, a SRAM PC-870, which has also been ordered..
NEXT STOP --> thumbies please!
Original stem sourced (ie swiped off my 701LX and resprayed black!) and SRAM PC-870 chain added (delinked to fit 7spd set-up of course)
3ttt stem was too long so much happier with this shorter stem, looks very well balanced now - saddle height bang on, too
Good point made about the Aztec brake blocks by minor-LEGEND below, went for the Control ones - Koolstops saved for my Prestige...
