The plan is to Put PAUL brakes on font and rear... might need to modify the rear Paul Racer to U-Brake... ?

Either single speed or 1x8... ??? Suggestions?

Very curious to see what you do. Trying to figure out my own 91 Blizz still, either XT 7 speed or singlespeed. Maybe this will inspire me in a direction..

Some Syncros bits should look nice on it! With your luck, I'm sure a Powerlite fork and some Syncros Revs will appear anytime :wink:

I'll probably go the SS route with mostly Paul components to mix it up and try something new

That was my original plan but I want to try a Paul Racer U-Brake for a change as I already have suntour roller cams on my Merlin and soon-to-be on my Romax

Hahaha.... I have a spare Powerlite so I'll probably use it... need to lengthen the steer and thus go threadless but since I'm going with a full PAUL theme it just wouldn't be right without a Funky Monkey :wink:
