So... This started with a ebay watch thing on here! A job lot of rubbish and right at the back an eagle eyed retrobike spotted a Zaskar frame! I sent a email and criminal amount of money was exchanged and i now own my 2nd Zaskar! So this is my misses new ride (read between those lines!). It's going to be a user not garage queen. Its also going to be sporting my sons child seat and a PM will be winging its way to Mr Gil_M for some decals as it gets closer to being finished.
Spec...

XT crankset with some middleburn for good measure
Manitous Mags up front
Ritchey WCS stem
Sram Woody rear mech (Very sexy!)
Xrayzzz for shifting power
Avid V's
Hope and Mavic up front, rear Mavic & XT! Yell ano grrr!
Tyres???

16.5' Frame aint purrrfect , few knocks and scratches! Autosol has made the world of difference. Will be having another buff before some stickerage!
I do need a post and seat. Would like a USE but may pop a Thomson on and seatage? Guess the wife will pick that? Build up pic are to show what it will look like!

Update space!

:wink:

Few mid build pics!
Req a nice post and some flat bars. All the rest is on its way to being done! Thinking green grippers rather than these IRC's? Finishing kit ordered and en route also! What you think boys n girls?

Update!

Decals arrived! HUGE HUGE HUGE thanks to Mr Gil_M! They are belting as always! Seatpost on it way! Cheers Mr thedirtyroger! and cheers to Russell for my chain and cassette. Currently bidding on a XT front mech on the Bay and we are a go go! Oh do require some grips! Any ideas to go with the Xrays? Anyone got some?

Liking the Manitous. Fresh change.

Flat bars would look better though.

Nice one, green tyres look good and I normally don't like coloured tyres.
