this is my new, low budget toy.

the spec is, well, a tad mismatched but here goes.....

1993 marin muirwoods frame
girvin flexstem
easton riserbar
avid shorty 6 canti's
avid 1.9 levers
scott / rigida front wheel
deore / rigida rear wheel
kenda tyres (smoke / dart combo style tread)
unbranded kevlar saddle
ritchey seatpost & headset
union pedals on a shimano crank
azonic chainring (37)
shimano rear cog (18)
DMR tensioner
1/8" KMC chain
all topped off with a purple ano lizard canti hanger on the back!

It looks..... well........ very mismatched, ratty and grotty BUT i'm liking the ratty look of it for now! over time, if i get my teeth into the single speed thing I will be stripping & smoothing (pannier mounts & cable guides) the frame and going for a powdercoat. I have gloss white frame & handlebar with red decals, gloss black forks & stem with white decals & i'll treat it to a matching wheelset while i'm at it but for now..... here it is in all its bastardised, bodge job glory!!!!

With that chain, I reckon a matching red stem, black bar and seatpost, and red decals would look pretty cool :wink:
