Chapeau monsieur. Great FAT collection Si. What will be added next might I ask?


Another Yo Guv. This new one has had a hard life and needs a new seat tube so its getting a few mods to bring it up to date. It will retain its oldskool charm but will ride bang up to date. I'd also like to find a nice Monster in pink like Yo-nate-y's.

Like the one AB had? Nice idea, assume you'll go with discs etc? Have a second Yo was considering doing similar with. Ended up getting an If so that'd that though.

Monster will be a fine addition to.

@John
Yes it will be getting discs and mid 2000's SIDs up front. Its a 100mm fork but running about 25mm sag gives it the exact same geometry as the Cotic I have riden all winter. I've fitted a 1" crown and steerer and cut and filed the canti mounts off the SID and rebuilt the internals. Brakes are Formula B4 racing four piston jobbies on 160mm rotors, wheels are Sun Ringle SOS rims on black XT hubs and it will wear modern kenda rubber. Rest of the kit is regular oldskool Ringle, King, Flite and Syncros, M900 mechs and shifters etc. Colour will be..................... :?: well wait and see :twisted:


I'll probably start a thread when I get the frame back from Kev Winter.

Thanks JB. Have your other non green eye cast over the text- I did mention that I had to change the cables on the SAB. Got some nice stainless ones and coloured nipples to go on there.
