Chris King is pressed in easily. I just checked the tubes and some grease did the job.

It is a pitty that I do not have a Rock Shox Mag 21 SL steerer, but this one will do till I found one. Or do you have one or do you know somebody having a spare RS Mag 21 SL, 1 inch steerertube, minimal 150mm???

Well, it ain't a rainforest Adroit, but it's still pretty nice.


I think one of your SL Ti's is lonely and needs a new home...

Interesting, never seen them before. Which year is yours? 1994?

I think, just polished silver parts will do fine. Anodized colours will distract from the frame.

I know, V-Brakes are not time-correct but somehow I think Avid Arch Surpremes will go nicely with this frame. Both extreme parts!
