Hi, thanks to RetroBike, I bought my Raven to jskdog (do you remember ?).

It came like that :

Good deal for the frame and fork, but some component were very cheap (Vbrake Avid + Tektro disc cable, Titec bar and saddle..) wich wasn't ever well installed (chain and cable tooooo short, fork mounted without all rings and bolt, etc..).

So first of all, I have cleaned and oiled everything, it was a big swift !

Then I put on it Easton Monkey Lite bar + spd pedals + Max Flite saddle :

With XTR M965 combo + A2Z disc adapter + new tyres :

Image


Then I have received my graal (converted to Lefty hub for the front, and with black Ringlé hub for the rear) :

Image


I have also resprayed my Coda crank, waiting for a better one :

...And the result : today = first ride !!!
