Baby's First Build: A '94 S-Works M2

Love the storey, it’s so similar to my own I could just cut and paste it, except I grew up near New Quay West Wales, and my older brothers MBUK & MTBpro hand me down purchases were to blame. I too have since built the original dream JMC replica a few years ago. And so it’s made me list my spare original FSX brace on eBay for those like you who need them, in return for all those who helped me with mine...

Joe, PM incoming.

So it has.

You’d have thought with eyes I’d have learned to pay closer attention. Especially with this!

Still, it is 730am and I am still in my boxer shorts, so I’m going to forgive myself.

Joe, please ignore my PM. Sorry!

And to whoever cut that canti stop off: a plague upon your house!

BTTDB I guess.

I thought I'd best point that one out for you just in case all you could see was 'shiny thing' and hadn't noticed!
I thought it was just a vbrake brace, until I looked at the pics closely, and you can see it no longer has the 'brushed' finish on the top where it has been filed and smoothed after removal 🤦‍♂️

Yep and sorry, did explain to that effect in the eBay description and the close up pics.

Oh Joe, you did nothing wrong at all!

My early Saturday morning excitement just got the better of me!

But I do know @freddok was looking for a V-brake FSX arch...

Fred?
For sure, always looking...But I'm not in a hurry. My FSX'll go on my Boulder Defiant build and maybe I'll take the way of an frame matching colour paint or polished Judy arch...I'm waiting for another set of Prismatic Powders samples and I'm undecided at this time, but for sure always interested to take a look at the result... ;)
