as macretro are going to dunkeld this january , big chief kaiser decided
on a weight weenie theme
this is my contribution
a 96 zaskar frame purchased from rob mac for a million pounds
its had a hard life (like him) lots of scratches , dents and general abuse the bike that is.
i have a 96 richochet that was built as a weenie about 6 years ago
and its evolved over the years ,the one pictured outside
i has reached the point where its near perfect as it is , just under 20lb
with light tyres ,but it is a well used bike so its gained a wee bit to make it more usable ,the next upgrade will be the frame
so i'll leave it as is and start again ,hence the zaskar
its built up at the moment ,sort of dry build going to tear it down and do the
details on it next
some pics
