New projet in the pipe
Specialized FSR S works 1995 or 95 stickered 94 ?
Initially thought it was a 94 as frame number is with S94 if I remember correctly .
but white lettering makes it a 95 then or is it white stickered 94 ?
But there are a few issues
1) Shock : usual fractured pivots
before sourcing a replacement, is it possible to repair the existing one with welding ??? any luck there or would it be a waste ? Is it alu that can be weld or a strange alloy ?
original sticker colors are ? white with black bordering ?
yellow was only for 94
Gil is on for the new set – But no model name was on top tube ? Only S works in the front pivot tube and on the seat post ?
Before going for a respray, I would like to renovate the old paint and give it back a nice shine
What is the product you prefer to do that ?
I have seen mentionned T Cut ? Is that THE one ?
can it be found on the internet for us "mortals on the other side of the channel" ?
Is it always better to use a wax polish afterwards ? or is the polish sufficient ?
I will go for quite classic build
M 900 Cantis ( although I do not like cantis
M 900 mechs
Self built wheels with Mavic 231 CD NOS rims and mint M900 hubs and DT spokes
Nice NOS Specialized Ground Control and Ground Master amberwalls
Possibly M900 cranks - do not like the Specialized one – too bulky
Maybe an Flite Carbon Evolution I
- or a regular leather one
Stem to be sourced
Bar : I have got a litespeed titanium bar that will do the trick for now
Fork : dunno yet
seatpost : probably an M900 with a shim
