Chucked together between the rain showers.

Can't change the stem and bars until I get a front cable hanger.

The end of the non matching seatpost has been chopped off, does anyone know what size pin they are please? I think it's a 29.4 but not sure. Really needs a black Control Tech post

Answer stem and post would look good
I have a Syncros stem on mine with Answer bars as the stems are pricey thanks to our friends with yetis lol

What's not to get, it's an old mountain bike.

It's a trip down memory lane for me... not had an Alpinestars for over 25 years.
The bike came complete but not with the bits I want, It's getting :-

Tyres
tubes
skewers
pedals
chain
bb
seatpost
seat bolt
saddle
stem
bars
grips
full cables inner and outer
cable hanger
also the paint isn't good so maybe a respray too.

Apart from that I'm not doing owt!

Fair enough.... just thought you’d sold out and bought off the peg

My faith has been restored
