So Zaskar #6 is in transit to its new owner, before I even managed to get it finished... :oops: but the plan was always going to be for a fully built hack/fitness bike.

Letmetalktomark messaged me a month ago about his one, and the deal just kinda disappeared into the ether... Fast forward to last week, and Mark offered it up for sale on here and it was too good to miss, so I pounced :lol:

So picked it up today (thanks Mark, you're a top bloke) and here it is, ready to ride and abuse :twisted:

Very decent spec considering the price, and built for the larger (ahem) rider in mind.. This one's going nowhere anytime soon, I really am a sucker for a nice Zaskar..

Nice!

I'm enjoying riding my 95 Zaskar work bike so much (even took it trail riding with the kids with city tires last weekend) that I'm toying with building it up for XC. What's the build spec on that bike?

Cool thanks! Is that a 3 inch travel bomber or a 4 inch bomber? I have a 3 inch I'm thinking of rebuilding and putting on mine, but I want to make sure it has the right amount of travel first.

Couple of subtle changes today.. :D

Ritchey pro stem (to match the other Ritchey bits)

Black seatpost and hope QR clamp (wish it was black)
Image

Ritchey WCS barends

And a matching Specialized pro back tyre

Almost ready to go out on it now.. Might just change the cranks for some black 'uns :D to tie in with all the other black bits...
