No updated pic's I'm afraid, but I have updated the spec as I have manged to change a couple of things. I now have all parts required to finish build so is just a matter of time now.

I will start new threads for all the other bikes in the fleet as none of them are on here at all!

i had one of those '95 team s-works. Got it from a guy who bought it off a woman who used to race for Specialised. It got damaged in a fire, by that i mean a bin went on fire near it and the paint bubbled slightly near the head tube and down tube intersection. Specialised replaced it for her straight away and i ended up with it. I had it resprayed with new decals. Now one of my mates has it back home and he's fooked the rear shock. My first ever full sus it was

Despite saying that I had all the bits before, I changed my mind about the tyres which set me back as I only found a rear. I have now found a front tyre and once it arrives, time to get back to this baby and update the thread. It has been on hold too long, November 2007 I bought the frame from Mike and it has taken this long to find all the right bits and gradually bring it together. She will be finished soon!

I love the Tyres and the XTR C/set I love it!!.

Mine is nearly there 2 so this will just spur me on to finish it. (Apart from decals which will be next year).

But anyway BTW I love it.

Thanks Nick, can I assume then that you love it? :wink:

I have to say that this has cost me a lot of money, time and brain ache, but it was all worth it in the end. I now need to start getting rid of all the spare parts that did not get used and make some room in the garage, S-Works Ti stem anyone?

It's not completely finished of course, I need to do some serious work on those pedals as I could hardly clip into them on the ride, I may swap the stem out for something shorter too as it feels a little long etc etc...
