Haven’t even sat on her yet. We have a lot of snow and ice and it’s not exactly set up for that. Appreciate the kind words. Thinking about grips. Oury, Deity maybe Specialized not sure....have Zee cage on the way and gold chain. So it’s kinda experiment as I go now. Also not in hurry to getter dirty yet. I haven’t waxed the paint yet either. I do have to say the Jagwire cabling was definitely worth the extra money wow didn’t think cable could be so different. Top quality stuff for sure.

Well Done. A Stunning Restoration 👍

Color is similar to this Rockhopper I just got in a trade-off. It was in poor condition, but cleaned it up & replaced a few parts. Nothing compared to what you’ve done w/ yours’....
Needs a newer saddle & new brake pads still.

....from the 80’s I believe?

Thanks for the advice, I’m still learning as I go. Probably changing out the chain and eventually maybe add 8 speed cassette. I want to ride for awhile first to feel out the ratios I like.

A bit higher-pitched that I thought it would be, but it's fairly loud for a small bell. I prefer the deeper, louder sound of the 55mm domed bell (which appears to be the one you have), but the Mini has the spacer mount.

Will get pics posted, once I've put the remaining drive train parts together and got it all running. ('96 Trek 970 w/ Deore XT 2x11.)
