To add to the the myriad of issues with this frame the rear Marzocchi unit is laughable,bin it.

Yeah, don't know what the rear shock is, not got that far yet.

Wheels sorted now, just need to cable up and should be ready to go. Maybe.

IT'S ALIVE!

final parts in, couple of false starts with a) getting the right cable in the appropriate guide, and b) getting the front mech in just the right place (first out of line, then too low and fouled on the middle ring so wouldn't shift back down from big ring)

Couple of laps of the road and everything seems to be connected. Drivetrain clicks around nicely, brakes are good, no wobbles or creaks.

Dare I say it.... FINISHED!


.... apart from a few finishing touches. Bar end plugs I think, and the tyres are a bit past it but will do for shakedown.


Barely 12 months behind schedule on a 6 week project. 'Bout right for the modern Britain.

Quick shakedown ride around the block. It's actually alright this. Everything seems to work and it rides pretty nicely. Time for a proper ride

But that would be cheating.
