Hey Panda,

I have the same bike, but my P2s are too long - what are you doing with yours? Want to sell up? Are they the originals with 395mm a to c?

All the best,

Jason

some bits and pics (having trouble with p/bucket at the mo) :D ...........

BNIB :D
Image

New elastomers :D
Image

Early (1992?) Hope cable disc brake caliper and hub assembly - still need correct bracket to fit onto RC35 fork leg :wink:
Image

Image

Avid BB5 disc calipers - I may use these if using forks newer than RC35s
Image

Need to decide on my RC35 choice - would like to use the Atmosphere Balanced variant with approx 40/50mm travel, but unsure if I can get 1.1/8th crown for them and don't want to use 1" steerer reducer.

If not I'll go for slightly later version with 1.1/8th threaded steerer fitted.

Also have bouncy 100mm travel set but will keep them for a) another bike or b) 10Under the Ben next year :shock:

Arran pencilled in. Especially as i've just committed to giving The Tall Fellow a free frame :shock:

Explosif likely to be a slow progress, low budget sort of affair, which will be USED :twisted:
