Re: Vintage mountain bikes.Whos gottem??

I still need to finish cleaning some parts, and do a final polish. But other than that it's getting close to being a bike again.

Re: Vintage mountain bikes.Whos gottem??

Just as I was about to go for a test ride last night, I heard a "pop-pfsst" from the front tyre (¤%& Schwalbe xx-light tubes keep failing on me).
Luckily I had the original front wheel on hand, on the summer house cruiser.

So today I went on a ride down to the harbour

And out to my "secret" chill spot

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51303753800_be75994248_c.jpg


All in all, I'm well chuffed with this build! I still need a longer seat post, but other than that the fit is pretty much spot on. And for once, I've nailed the brake/gear adjustments on the first try :happy:.

I cabled up the brakes Brit-style, to keep the rear housing from rubbing on the front cable:

Yes, the seat angle is uncomfortable.  Yes, I’ll change it.

Re: Vintage mountain bikes.Whos gottem??

New tube for the front wheel, new seat post, and new pedals

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51310121165_859ed9df06_c.jpg


I read the other day that oil slick is the new purple ano. So I guess it's OK to mix and match :21::crazy2:

I had looked for one of these for years, found a nice one that someone had removed the pro class wheels, passed on that one then luckily this one came along a few years later

Re: Vintage mountain bikes.Whos gottem??

With being sooo busy it work it’s been hard to hunt down deals or even take the drive to pick something up. Found this listing yesterday evening and picked it up this morning. Giant ATX 990 John Tomac signature loaded with a few goodies!

I've tried that already - The tan-wall clashed with the purple. Right now I'm most inclined to stick with OG/Maxxis on this one, and move the white tyres to my Trek cruiser:
