Glad you like it, Ken.

Hope to visit your place again in May. Will be riding a biathlon with my daughter then.
Who knows, may find something else to fit in the back of my van.

Take care,
Robert

Changed to crankset from 175mm to knee friendly 170mm. Thankfully got the same crank so was able to reuse the anno rock ring which for some reason I am geeking over. Also switched the brake pads to Kool Stop Eagle Claw II

PS yes I will be checking all the bolts for tightness now that I have run it for a day.

its a unique 1987 Ascent, as the decals are 1987 but the color was from 1986. I had one just like that in 1987 , it was my first real ATB. such fond memories!

Thanks. Currently working on a 1996 Ritchey Project 20 and a "neo retro" Saracen Kili Team so will soon post more photos of my bikes.

For my Saracen I choose 2.25 tanwall Schwalbe Nobby Nick.

I have no idea, to be honest. I bought them second hand and they don't have any decals or whatsoever. In the mean time, I changed to a similar pair from Trigon with carbon stanchons and rim brake bosses as I choose to use V brakes in the front too.

Just love those old Mongoose MTB's and I would trade away some of my nicer MTB's for a chrome one in my size. What I have seen done is using gift wrapping Ribbon, once installed it looks just like the factory stuff, easy to replace when it gets dirty or worn & you can get almost any color under the sun when you look on line.

Thought I'd post mine. ~1991 Specialized Stumpjumper FS picked up for $50. Had fun trying to build it as cheap as possible. Stock drivetrain (Shimano Deore LX) and wheels (Wheelsmith), swapped in a taller stem, rigid fork and 1.5" WTB slicks. Blackburn MTN rear rack, Blackburn Local Deluxe front rack since I had it laying around. If anyone by chance knows the proper seatpost diameter for these bikes let me know. I have a slight suspicion that the Marin seatpost that came with the bike doesn't fit properly.
