Well, now the garage is warmer, I've finally got the Zaskar on the road.... 75% as I want it.

Thanks to the following

Frame from Kevin in the USA ( gm1230126)

Wheels from someone on here, sorry, cant remember who, XTR hubs and Mavic SUP

Chain ring from ededwards

Magura HS 33 hydraulic v brakes from taulpaul

Ritchey ProLite Bars from steve k

Titec seat post from steve k (I think?)

Bonty Saddle from Bristol Bike Jumble

Red Ritchey pedals from CTK

Red X-Lite skewers from oldschoolpete

Forks and cranks from Ebay - the cranks are Limited Edition RS 7s and will be replaced with RS2s soon.

Chain tensioner from ebay :wink: (old campag saphire I think!)

The Hope stem will be replaced by something from the right vintage so longa s it's red and around 80/90 mm

Mid 90's onza bar ends already mine as were the tyres.


Sorry for the poor pic - will post better ones soon.

You should be able to tell the year from the frame number.

Definately not a 97 though with the guide on the seat tube for cantis.

Latest it should be is 96. Chris.

Edit: It is very nice though :wink:

More desireable than the 97's in my book. No dorky fat bloated downtube.

You are hearby ordered to put gears on that sucka

or the penalty of forever smelling of 'cheese' will be dealt to you.

:wink: :D

and a quick 'date my zaskar' tip:

gear hanger has two bolts = early

one bolt = later
