Hi All,

First post. Love the site. I've been lurking in MTBR.com's VRC forum for a while now but Kingroon mentioned this site and i'm likin' it!

Here's my current project. details are as follows:

'92 American Comp Lite frame, 17" (New)
Answer Accu-Trax fork (lightly used)
M-900; brake/shift lever's, canti's, hubs, cranks, front and rear derailleurs (all lightly used)
M-900 48T big ring & 12-32 cassette (New)
M-532 36T ring (New)
No name 26T cr-mo small ring (New)
UN-71 B/B (New)
HG-91 chain (New)
Nitto 65 pillar (New)
Tioga T-bone stem (New)
No name flat bars (New)
Sele Italia saddle (seen a bit of action)
Mavic 117 SUP CD rims (lightly used)
XT 1" (27.0) headset (lightly used)
M-737 pedals (Lightly used)

It'll have NOS Panaracer Smoke & Dart tyres to finish.

My next project will be a '91 Fisher Montare I picked up on Fleabay for $11. I think it'll be an SS project.

Fun times.

Cheers,

Arran.

Love those Americans, I remember seeing a photo of an anodised purple one with Rock Shox RS-1's in an English mag somewhere :D

Yo.. Hi and welcome Arran, nice ride mate!

Looking forward to seeing that Montare, it'll be a contender for the Penny Counter B.O.T.M.!

Matt, Mike & Melvin! Fancy meeting you all here! ;)

Thanks for posting that scan. I think i'll put some Mag 21's on the Comp Lite after looking at that!
