Hi !

I just picked up a 1994 Comp-1 with full XTR gruppo in very good condition for 200 $ CAN. I'm curious to know what you've done with yours.

My plan is to use the gruppo for another project and I'm hesitating between rigid mtb or "gravel / dirt-drop" to build a bike for the easy trails. The thing is that I find the frame (wich is exactly like the one you have according to what I see) to be long but low for whatever application I'm planning... I hate the feeling and look of a 45 degrees stem...

Lefty

Nice find for a reasonable price!

I'd say yours is a little later than mine: tapered down tube, smoother welds, color fade in the top-tube decal and side-mounted top tube cable guide all point to 1994, as you state, while mine is probably a 1992 model.

Indeed, they are long and low! I like my bikes to have a low front-end and a stretched position, so not too worried about that. The wheelbase is a bit longer than I'd have liked for lively handling.
I haven't got round to building mine up yet, but when I do I'll probably go for a low-rise stem, something like 20degrees or so. Or a suspension fork (mag 21s).

Keep us posted on your progress!
