Well, the frames from 1996... One of the V-2 models made by Sportech in Corona, California.
In a change from the 'concours' rebuild style of many bikes on here this one is kept reasonably up-to-date - it's fitted with stuff that works, and when that stuff breaks/wears out it's fitted with new stuff that works.
Fox Float 100 RLC are from 2002, travel reduced to 80mm.
Seatstays are later too, so it works with Hope C2 calipers. These are #1's which are now officially out of stock. I think I got one of the last ones when it was serviced recently.
Hope Bulb hubs are of the era, and I got one of the lightnig strike discs on the rear. It was on the front, but the braking surface is smaller and doesn't work as well as the plain drilled version.
I'd love to say it was still shifting using this...
... but the jockey wheel bearings disintegrated. I thought it had been bent in a crash, but that was just the mech hanger. I discovered that after I'd fitted a SRAM X-9 mech, which I've kept on there. Transmission is 9 speed using a new XT sprocket.
Roox cranks which skin your ankles have just been replaced with some XT external BB units.
Syncros stem still just about usable, the top cap has given up the ghost.
