    'Minty' Orange - '96 C16R

    I never would have thought of putting those colours together, but it looks really nice!

    A wizardly Merlin Malt (build)

    After peeling off the stencils, the forks look really nice! The stars have come out really neatly. I added the Specialized decals to the rigid fork, so that's done, apart from top coat. I'll probably do most of the top coats at the same time. I have also sprayed the purple on the frame and...

    Morati HC 1.3 DISC Build

    That's so sleek!

    A wizardly Merlin Malt (build)

    Next up was spraying the gold on the forks. I also decided to spray the stem I'll be using. It was black, and in nice condition, but I decided it would be fun to get a bit more colour coded with the components as well. My previous build was only really colour-co-ordinated on frame and fork, with...

    A wizardly Merlin Malt (build)

    Next steps! In order to do the contrasting stars, I needed to spray the star colour onto the parts before adding the masking decals. The front of the frame is now gold, and the bottom of the forks are purple. My brother made some vinyl stars for me, and you can see some stuck onto the rigid fork...

    Shifter fault?

    Thanks. It's definitely not that for me though, because it was still doing it in a dismantled state.

    DMR Switchback 2003/4? Built - to rebuild bigger and NOS!

    2009? Would that be a Trailstar 2? I have one of those as well. Very nice but also very heavy!

    DMR Switchback 2003/4? Built - to rebuild bigger and NOS!

    That looks great! DMR made such good looking frames! I say 'made,' because their current Trailstar is hideous! I have c.2001 Trailstar that I'm going to repaint and rebuild and am quite excited about it. It will be similar to yours, with 1x9 drivetrain and disc brakes. PS What does NOS stand for?

    Shifter fault?

    Ah... okay. I didn't think grease could do that! Will try your suggestion!

    A wizardly Merlin Malt (build)

    Hey folks, Following my successful build of my first Merlin Malt, I decided to build another one. This will be a "use what you have" build, born out of the realisation that I had enough parts to build another bike. I just needed a frame, and so kept an eye out for bargains. Along came another...

    Shifter fault?

    Hmm okay, worth a try. Thanks.

    Shifter fault?

    At the moment, they're not connected to a bike. I'm just checking to see they work.

    Shifter fault?

    Hi folks, I have a pair of Deore LX shifters (c.2003-6), 3x9 speed. They're not attached to a bike. I remember taking them off because they didn't work, though, and they've been sitting around for years. I have the same problem with both shifters, which seems odd. I took one apart (9spd) and...
