Had some tinkering time today , I have removed the crap and fitted some better parts that will suit me and my riding better
First to go was the cup and cone BB, a nice XT cartridge is much better, the frame was super clean and rust free inisde the shell which is reassuring, I have fitted thumbies as the DX STI units I have never liked, XT rear u brake and XT black canti's, I have also rebuilt the wheels with a black XT front hub and a black ringle rear hub which is 130, I wanted to fit the black XT rear but its 135
, some specialized amberwall tyres , the seat post will not stay just to see if black looks ok which I think it does,I will look to get a black one in 26.8.
I need to give the frame a good lean and polish , shorten the chain and get some nice grips and it will be ready to hit the trails
I'm guessing the saddle is the original , it's dated 1990
