about what colour i should get this frame repainted i have received the frame back
the colour i decided on was a white main frame with a silver swing arm and seatstay. Quite neutral, stickers were going to be by Gil M.
i started building it today, one of the reasons i like this frame is because it takes the sting out of harsh trails but with only minimal travel at the back it doesn't bounce too much like modern suspension can. also having a retro full suss is cool and the fact it's a v brake frame is a bonus as all my other frames are canti specific (and you know my canti hanger rule!)
i am gonna go for a mostly XT build and initially some of those parts are coming from the bits box from the remains of my P7 (while that is being refinished) fork wise i have a choice of 2 forks, rockshox judy race from 99(?) or 97 Z1 bombers, initially i'll use the rockshox because they are lighter but i might switch to the bombers to compare later.
anyway here are some pics
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
