I had this model in 17, expecting it to ride like a HeiHei, but it was more like an Aluminium frame in ride quality (stiff) The 6/4 Alv rear triangle, being the reason, most unlike Ti.
Strangely the chainstays were still laterally quite flexy and small as I am, could induce tyre rub when standing up on the pedals. I loved the look and weight of the frame mind, whats the plan component wise?

I must admit "wold" when i did the research on here your 17 frame 8) was drop dead georgous .. :facepalm: i must have splashed the keyboards :oops: ...i will transfer all the jewellery from the 853 explosif..xtr mixture of old and new on the gearing ,brakes and wheels a modern ritchy stem and bars..the forks will be P2..Gil has done the decals with a little but tasteful twist..just hope i can get out soon..the weather down here as improved..5 straight days no rain... :D

Ernie :wink:
