Sooo.... Finally decided to move on this project....

Long story short, last year I traded some parts with RockiMtn and ended up with a smaller 1988 Avalanche.... but... a couple weeks ago I came across this 1988 Avalanche... exact same but bigger! Perfect!..

YES! that is a 1" syncros noodle stem... super rare... :D

Still needs some touch up paint ect...

As you can see it will have a full 6 speed Deore XT group, some parts are NOS, not all though... Wheels are original Wheeltech built, new Smoke / Dart tires, ect...

anyways... more build pics coming soon... for now enjoy :D

Stem is not for sale... Took me way too long to find it and just don't have time to wait for another one to show up... BUT I do have a non-noodle 1" version... If you are interested send me a PM so we don't flood the build thread with buy/sell dealings =)

you need to get to shutter BEFORE he puts a part onto a bike if you want any chance on that part. ;)

looks like you need a matching inner and outer blackspire chainring on the crankset of yours? :?

That looks like the start of a sweet looking build . Were the thumbies hard to find in 6 speed ? Like the extended seat tube too . Much nicer to look at than a mile of seatpost , like my Bontrager :roll: What does the smaller frame look like ?

Edit ; just re read . Exactly the same is a bit of a give away :facepalm:
