That's a sweet build - chapeau

Did you get anywhere with finding replacement decals in the older style?

I haven't looked. I got some newer style ones from gil_m for my privateer build that were good quality (with custom contour lines added) so I imagine that he will have the older ones on file too.

Couldn't resist @kokies offer of some rebuilt Judy's with srp speed springs, which arrived today and are lovely.

Photos of a test fit of the forks and a new bontrager stem from @Once A Hero with a bigger rise. The longer a-c of the fork and the stem rise should make this more comfortable for proper riding

Looks even better with the new fork, imo

Lovely, lovely bike.

I ride a couple of Races with different set-ups - one rigid (with, erm, risers), and one much like yours.

Love 'em both... my favourite singletrack bikes, ever.

25 mile ride around the local area and the bontrager is feeling sorted. It's not objectively "better" than the privateer* I had before, but it's a nice feeling to own a piece of niche Mtb history.

* Although swapping out the switchblades for some very nice Judy's is one of my better decisions.
