Yes another one :roll:

While I was building this loads seem to popping up on here :lol:

Originally Mark's (Sinnett) I bought the frame, forks and a few other bits from him.

I was originally going to build it with the black Lx groupset which I had from a previous build but once I got the frame I realised it had to be Dx. Took a while to find a decent 175mm chainset but thanks to Retrobike members I eventually sourced all the bits I needed. The wheels I had set aside for this were 8 speed so it has Lx shifters/levers.

I took it for its first ride on Sunday with the Lincs lads and it rode very nicely apart from a skipping chain which has now been sorted with a new cassette.

More pics and a full spec when I have more time, thanks to Fluffychicken for this pic :D

It looks great, especially with the purple parts. I'm so glad this has gone to a good home and will get ridden as intended. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Might as well rename this forum 'readers alpinestars' :D

Very nice indeed Chris, but I guess some of us are pretty biased. I'm also amazed at the amount of A-star fans here at the moment, especially considering all the lovely exotic machinery about at the moment :wink: :)

Loving the purple ano additions - very tasteful 8) and that's the only Alpinestar with a silver seatpost that I really like...
And the bike's definitely benefitted from the DX groupset.

Just out of interest, what barends are they? I'm looking for something similar for a project at the moment... :?
