Massive thanks to Fluffychicken who has had this in his garage waiting to be built ever since we picked it up three or four years ago.
It was in a bit of a state paint wise and it's forks were black.
This is it now after a full respray and new decals, thanks Gil.
Full dx groupset other than the SS7 levers.
Yet to ride it so I'll report back soon.

:cool: looking nice with the new paint.

Had me scratching my head this frame for a bit, its obviously a '91 but has later rear cable stops, no tube. For a bit i thought it might be an Equippe, with Tange tubes but not sure if they used Ritchey dropouts? I have however found a pic of a '91 Hammer with the later rear cable stops, the green one. So still confusing.

Picture of the Equippe and the green Hammer:

mk one, eagle eyes :)
Yes, many Rockies ended up without the noodle in 1991, no idea why. I think it's the later models, I could post up some other pictures, Altitude included.
It is actually probably an Equipe here anyway and not a Hammer, but it was in the red colour when I bought it and when buying the decals I hadn't really look at the difference till about a day after, I only had a few years to notice ; -)
Hey ho, looks much nicer dressed up as the more familiar Hammer.
