Needs a non-noodled stem and a period XT mech that works - otherwise pretty happy with the turnout...

Llandegla beckons, methinks! :)

Awesome build. However I'd have kept the discs, but that's just me. Did you have some MC Suspenders for the front too?

Stunning, very cool bike.

Personally I would have used a riser to get that handlebar position on such a bike, not sure what was available back in 1991 though. And talking of 1991, that must have appeared to be from outer space! I have this vision of the Sanny riding up to a Ritchey P22 fillet brazed on the trail. Both to me are desirable period bikes though they couldn't be more different.

Enjoy!!

Very nice 8)

Can't wait to get mine done, will be more of a downhill beast though (with full gears), already has the 7" rear so gone for 7" forks to match, using the C2 discs off my LTS.

Very versatile bike's though.
