My package from Lee arrived today so off I went on the build.
I've got it ridable now, though I'm still missing a few items to put her back to original flavor...
- One turqoise blue Ringle seat binder
- One turqoise blue Avid Tri-dangle
- Specialized Ground Control Extreme tires
- Deore XT toe-clips and straps
I'm running it with the Thomson post (the XT was all nasty bent) and Flite saddle for now as they are both available and quite comfy.
It's been quite fun tracking down some of the parts. Most, like the XT platforms, I gave to friends years ago when I built up bikes for them from my spare parts bin. Some quite humorous calls made in the last couple of weeks...
"Hey Mark, do you still have that GT I built up for you 12 years ago?"
"Yeah, I think it's out in the shed under the Little Tikes Princess Playhouse"
"Awesome! Do you know if it still has the the Anodized Turqoise Avid Tri-dangle straddle cable hangers?"
"You know, the little blue dohickeys on the brake cables above the tires"
This weekend is our local 24 hour race...may take the Hardcore out on a lap
