I wasn't keen on the mudguards and rack so they fell off, and the tyres and seat were changed!

...and here it is today >>>

Just the hubs and skewers remain LX at the mo.

I had to buy a whole Cannondale F800 to get that titanium railed Bontrager Seat!

Think I'll stick some Judys on it next :roll:

Ooh I remember that - almost went for it myself. I wondered if it would show up on here. Nice work :)

I changed the hubs and QRs to some nos XT about 6 months ago and found some Judys (that I've wanted for ages for this bike) with the right steerer. Just waiting for the Kronos springs to come from the US as the elastomers have broken up. :D

I want to change the brace on the Judy to one without a hanger then that's it, project finished (possibly, may be or may be not)... >>>
