Hi Rody,

:lol: You should know how much fun I had when taking that pic

Status: I've cleaned the chainsuck area and some tiny spots under the downtube wit a dremel tool. With a converter I've created a stable underground for further treatment. With matching paint I already applied 3 layers. Will add a forth. Result will be that the touch up has about the same thickness as the powdercoating and is hardly visible.

Prepared some components too. I planned that when all pieces of the puzzle are there, I will make it a bike :D I hope within 1 or 2 months.

- Melvin

rody

This sucks! seems like GROVE frames coming out of the woodwork & i dont own one! Think they are the nuts. Ive still got the new old stock HAMMERHEAD bar combo but i think it should be on a matching frame. Anyone selling a GROVE frame please, please let me know :D

Slimjoe,

What are you looking for...Hardcore, X (aren't we all :D ), Assault, Xtreme, Ti ?

I'm heading to the house of Grove this coming week, can't make any promises but you never know what's in the closet.

I do know of a BEAUTIFUL Ti bike...lots of cash though. Here's a pic

Year? I really don't know. Maybe Monster knows, as it was his bike? Will PM him.

Paint and decals are not original. It is powdercoated now and the durable finish makes it ideal for what I will use the bike for: Hard Core riding :twisted:

I think the people who tried to reproduce the decals did a proper job on them ...and if I ever opt for new ones I know were to find you or Rody :) When I acquired it I thought it would be cool to have it repainted in white, but when I saw it 'live' I realized paint is simply to good to have it repainted.

You're right.

The tube is fat enough to put there a decent, from a few meters well readable sticker on. Cool, isn't it ? :mrgreen:

I yesterday installed the Euclid headset and the XC Pro BB. I already noticed the Euclid cranks won't fit :( The rings build to much inward.
