Seeing mayco's build, i thought i'd post up my one again, but this time i built up a 19" and just sold the previous 18" i had, its a better fit, toned down all the colours, and stripped my RTS for the HS33's and seat.

Like it!

Nice clean looking frame Matt, where'd you find that one?
Did you have to get new forks or did it come with em?

got is off the bay, forks came with it, was planning front sus, but gonna keep it rigid, (keeps it very light), took 7 weeks to sort collection and delivery, was deffo going ot win the auction after loosing out to you on your one, now sold the 18" as this far better fit.

How have you managed to sort the rear cable for the V brakes I can see the detail in the pic but it looks like the original collar is still used.
interested as I am going to convert a 1993 Hahanna to V's for my boy.

Carl.

there is a thread about a similar mod around here, all I used was a barrel adjusted - had to drill out the bolt hole to the next size up and tap it, but thats all i did, its been turned by 90 degrees
