Going through my stuff, with a view to selling a large proportion of it, has helped me collect together parts for my next build... It's mostly parts that either are iconic (imo), had in the past, or have been with me for some time.

I have the frame and forks, frame will be under wraps until it's finished (hmmm...painted or polished? :? )

The idea is, i will add to this thread as i go.

Parts for now;

No, not Specialized.....

It's british and not steel! :wink:

I had a stout hub years ago, radial laced - it just takes me back.

No thumbies spare though Sean, sold a few sets a year or so ago, sorry.

Grips are like saddles - it's a very personal thing..... Yeti grips are my all time fave!

It's not a Raleigh, sorry... 8)

Pace? That XTR looks really battered. In fact, most parts look well used :)

There is some Pace involved - but it ain't square!! :wink:

Rear mech is silky smooth, no pivot play whatsoever - despite it's looks. Flite is a well loved, broken in example of Ti railed beauty and the Middleburn cranks have been with me since '96 - NOS XT Canti's, NOS Specialized Stout hub, NOS Panaracer Spikes.... Doesn't matter though, because it'll get ridden, just like all mine do (when they're finished that is!! :roll: ). :D

Rear wheel....

Rim is slightly worn, but this ain't no trailer queen.
