Wahoo, etc.. ! I've finally finished building up my NOS M-Trax Ti 1000 frame. Bought for Â£30 from a Raleigh dealer closing down. When I say finished, I mean finished this very evening after work !
It's build up with new Deore XT 9-speed and SID Race forks (80mm travel), XT parallel push v-brakes and the wheels are XT hubs on Mavic XC-717 rims. The headset and bars are FSA, an On-One stem and a carbon spacer, no-name carbon seatpost and Turbomatic 4 saddle.
I think I can just about claim retro-ness as the frame is about 13-14 years old, it has a shark fin and the front derailleur is from the previous XT groupset (8 speed) as they're supposed to work better.
It's taken about 9 months to build up and now I'm just itching for the weekend to go out and break it in.
Titanium top and down tube, bonded to a welded cromoly rear triangle.
Spot the shark fin !
Now maybe I can give my Ozark a happy retirement and send him off for a much needed respray and a lie-down after 19 years of abuse...
What's next? I'd quite like to get my mitts on a Dynatech team road frame. Hmmm....
