Ahhhh....totally rings a bell now! I remember vaguely reading about your frame. Seems like the posts were moved to accommodate cantis as well. Powder coat looks great!!! Subscribed for this one!

Hi guys, a little time put to one side and it's time to share Paul's new decals (thanks Gil for the Brodie, Salsa and NOS Pace decals). I'm really pleased. Time for a glass and a gaze; do you know the wife calls it bike telly (?). I'll have to get some more time, as the need to build is massive! Peace and love, H.

Great looking frame, forks and stem – the orange sounded exciting but I think you did the right thing in keeping it white – it looks a quality classy job. Nice. Not sure about the blue bits but at least lower those bar ends towards horizontal or in line with stem :wink:

A bit of an update for you all. I acquired some great condition Hope wheels, which subject to a refurb and a new matching rim have turned out fab. I couldn't resist some NOS Middleburn chain ring bolts on flee bay earlier this month, so on they went too. Sadly, the previous Pace fork decals bit the dust as I had problems with the canti studs, an event that got Lee to brake out his torch again. Anyhow, all has ended well now.

Just a bit of fettling now and it's time to hit the trails. That said, I can't help but think a replacement blue Middleburn spider might finish Paul off (anyone?).

So there you have it, 25 years ownership, one full refurb, countless bits and the journey continues. I enclose a build sheet below, peace and love, H.

Very nice, my size too :)

And there is a blue spider on the bay at the moment.

Changed my mind about the blue bits - the Brodie's looking great now 8)

Hi guys, a post ride clean and Paul rides as good as ever. Just a few small changes, notably a blue Middleburn spider plus bolts, a pair of NOS Spuds and some Z-Max's for the pics. Thanks for all the previous kind words, support, keen pricing and accommodating swops; the fruit of our labours is before you.

I'm on the hunt for some XTR M950/1/2 for another build, so as one journey begins another recommences on the trail.

Peace and love, H.
