Had been looking for a 16" Zaskar for a while, had a couple of deals fall through then noticed Awkward Kid posted his 16" Zaskar in the WIW thread, so i talked him into selling me the frame
, 16" Zaskars are a bit harder to find than 18's.
Started throwing it together last night, this is the stage thismorning, build for now with just what i have laying around, will have STX Cranks and Canti's for now, XT 737 levers/shifters and XT735 rear mech, this will be my main hammer bike so not going for a flash or original build anyway.
Forks are Bomber Z3's with the disc mount cut off and repainted gold, fork bridge is with a neighbour who is (hopefully) welding a canti hanger on.
Waiting on stickers from Gil-m, these will be the early style ones with ZASKAR LE on the downtube.
Not sure if i'd trust this
, steerer is a decent length but did'nt allow for the depth of the Syncros stem, clamp will be on 3/4 steerer 1/4 fresh air, tightens up ok though so not sure if i should look for a longer steerer ? will i be risking using my face as a brake ? lol:, have another single bolt stem that fits the whole steerer but it's a cheap Truvative thing that would'nt look as good as the Syncros.
