Ok Hollister fill in the gaps for us plebs:

Seat tube sticker? Stepped ferrles? Those rear drop outs are?
But it has pressed in bottle mounts? So the year is what?
Quick release..?

Did we see you recently bought a fork around here?

90 OR's didn't have made in Santa Cruz sticker - those were only on after Trek takeover, but still ones made in SC. 96-97's. 90 had big seat QR and clamp, and horiz drops. Keith always recomended stepped ferrules on the early bikes. Bonded and riveted cable guides. Fiber front roller for front Der.

It's a happy bike. Kinda hard to find in grey.

Oh. And sorry for mine having the rear der cable routed wrong. Should go under the monostay. And I'm changing the bars to a proper True Temper.

So still in a state of tweaking.

Hollister, what is yer build gonna be?

all over the place. comp fork, no logo CK headset, pinned bonty bar/stem, m900 brakes and levers (to be replaced with ? down the line) bonty grips, paul hubs and repro GC tires, those gray tires on yours are hot.

(hot d@mn, my photos suck compared to yours)

up next, a place to sit..
