Hi Guys,

Currently on the 'build' with a frame of unknown origin. All i can say is its light, aluminium and has lovely welding so i decided it was worthy of a second go!

Mavic 517s on XT hubs
XT Cantis
Xt Front Mech
USE Spin Stix Skewers
Manitou Answer Forks
FAS PIG headset soon to be changed for Ritchey Scuzzy Logic
Crap post and saddle but bids are on EBAY so ill let you know!
LX Cranks
Dia Compe levers
Raceface stem and bars but again got bids on ebay on some Ritchey stuff thats a little more period!
Got some more Mavics coming with some Michelins on so they will be going on.

Thats about it for now. And yes it really is that bright! The colour is straight off the 2-pack mixing scheme ORANGE!!!

Ill keep updating as parts arrive!!

Tim

Massive shot in the dark here but the cable guides and the dropouts look like Serotta...

Looks to be a standard AL frame made by Maxway, a large manufacturer for many name brand companies. The design and dropouts are consistant with their aluminum hardtail line. Nice frames, solid and straight. It will make a very nice kick around ride for you.

cheers,

rody
