Sorry,

when I saw the bike on Marktplaats I wouldn't just place a bid.
I immediately called the seller and made the appointment.
Yes, I knew for €200 the bike was a bargain.


Make you jalous:
Have you seen my 1993 Zaskar LE?

..as a reaction on

28.6mm is quite an odd size for a post. A shim will not work (ugly), as the seattube end is perfectly horizontal. I know a shop that has a NOS 28.6 Syncros laying around, but they want an imo considerable amount of money for it.

There is a plus on this: If you find one in the right size, it mostly isn't expensive, 'cause nobody needs it in that size.

I found a couple of Balistic titanium for my Ibis Mojo's. The Balastics look nice, are quit light and strong. Just look on eBay every once and a while, they pop up not to often, but you'll find something nice when you're looking for it.

BTW Very nice bike. I like the idea to bring it back to the right era. Good choice not to go for the black LX, but a nice XT or XTR groupset will make it a winner !! :D

The bike is almost finished. Changed the brakes to XT-v-brake for more power.
Soon take some pictures of my new born beauty.

Total cost of the bike €250,-

the high head tube would make it a great candidate for a off road drop bar set up.
