So I have finally given in , and decided to build another Orange up, and when johnnyboy tempted me with one of his fruity delights recently , how could I resist.. :roll: :lol: :lol:

Its a C16R frameset , not sure on the correct date yet, but somewhere around 95-97..

Here's a few sneek pics of the frame.. ;)

And here's some of the parts waiting to go on :)

Stem, I have not decided yet on the final one , but it will be one of these two.. :)

Image
Bars

Again having problems on fork choice, but down to two contenders :
Image
Or
Image

And the groupset, will be the finest Shimano have ever produced in my opinion.

Full M900
Image

Image

Due to the condition of these, I am going to give them a good polish.. ;)
Image
And just for a bit of bling , I thought I would give it a bit of Gold.. ;)

Image

I'll post more up as I progress this one, going to enjoy this.. :)

Thanks guys,, yea I think the stalk looks better, however it might be a little long for me , I think the black colour suits the frame better, but the sweet stem is just that sweet and Ti too, so will offer a little bit of dampening to the front end, if I use the F7 forks .. :)

Nearly all the parts are ordered and just waiting upon delivery . prior to assembly, the only thing I am unsure of is the seatpost, if I fit the stalk I shall want a black seat post, and I suppose a XTR would be in order but they are not very common,, so suggestions for a alternative would be welcome.. :)

Wheels are the only other thing I am having issues with locating , I did originally think a set of XTR's but tending to think toward hope, but the issues with flange breakages puts me off somewhat. .

Any suggestions.. ?

never fitted a suspension fork myself but i would say 63mm max as that would be right for the year, by the way i believe it's a '96
