Hello to you, long time listener, first time caller. How are you all today?

I just wanted to share the newOld love of my life; it's my own 1993 bike, but other than the frame, rear mech, rear hub/cassette and rims it's been refurbished with the best of old things I can find.

Original frame with RC31s on, Azonic ORC stem with x-lite xc risers. Drive is original LX hub & 7sp cassette with short DX dérailleur and a thumbie, Middleburn cranks with a Girvin rock-ring on & Odessy shark bite pedals. I've got the original Mavic 321 rims with some period-looking Charge tyres on. I'm stopping with a Mk1 v-brake and a Magura disc. Topped off with a red Rolls. It's bloody lovely. Most things I bought new at the time, some have come from a popular auction website.

That is all, see ya!

very similar to the build Im putting together with my 93 EG. Do you know what size seat post it takes, I dont have a post that fits and I cant find my calipers to measure.

Yes, wasn't easy information to find, I think I found it by a search on this forum. Only place I could find one after trying 6 LBSs was that website.
