Group set



I know what your thinking Iíve posted this in the wrong thread. As much as i like the LX M560 group the cranks have let me down. I hadnít notice but the squared part of the crank arms have been rounded off to a point where they wonít stay tight. I found this donor bike 1991 Diamondback Axis with all the components needed to get the Klein to where it should be.

T Bone stem is cool ! If those are servo-wave brake levers, you will enjoy them !

I will be selling this frame once I have the components off it. I will leave the seat, seat post, bottom bracket stem and bar on it. 18” frame size paint is immaculate.

Restoration, restoration


Some serious work taking place on the
Rascal. Full XT M730 groupset going on and the chainstays no longer black. It just looked wrong with the black fork in my opinion. So I definitely feel as though things are heading in a good direction. The noodle on that Syncros stem caused me fits feeding brake cable through. Damn.

Old Syncros\Klein fan checking in, good choice on the Kwacker green, also a fan of that. Nice to see some 'action photos' in my old 'hood.

Dirty day




This bike definitely boogies but a new to me trail had a surprise sharp left just over the crest of a hill that I wasnít prepared for needles to say the ending was not good. 6 stitches to reattach my eyebrow and a Tetanus shot later i was able to stop and take a couple bike pics. Long day
