Glad you like it :)

The bike's still in storage at the moment as are most of them; that's why the Vit is getting the spanking at the moment both for riding and general commuting.

Hopefully someone will buy the house. Unfortunately we've been 'ConDem'ed to 5 years of destitution so nobody's buying anything. Shame because the house with the "bike room" that I liked has now sold.

I still have the Control Tech and the ATAC stems but I'm still undecided what to do with them. I'm always on the lookout for other things.

Very nice! I agree with the comments about the stem though & you need some plugs for the bars... :wink:

Came across this locally--do you think this is a 1994 frame? If so, where can I find the specs (especially top tube length) for a 17"? And will this be a 1" steerer?

Thanks all-

Your pic is hard to make out for sure but it does look like it could be. Here is mine which is now for sale. And yes a '94 would have a 1" headtube.

Bowing to greater knowledge (nope - I think the ATAC looks porky as well) I've got a Ritchey ForceLite for it so that will go on as soon as I've assembled it all again.

Oh yeah... Got some bar plugs for it as well now :wink:


Paramount - your frame is almost certainly a '94 - I'm not sure grey/green was used any other year.

Right - All wrinkles now ironed out (I think). Some advice taken, some not. Some new, almost era tyres, a non-creaky chainset, NOS stem and some bar plugs (that's for sunchaser - I like the beer and it just happens to have green caps 8) )

Anyway without any further ado, here we go:
