Unfortunately too big for me.

I have an '87 Ascent. Your's is probably an '86 - they switched the Dura Ace bits to XT in '87. I ride it on the gravel trails at least once a week and even though it's the 'poor man's' Ritchey, the ride is fantastic.

That Ritchey and that Panasonic are boss looking.

Kudos.

Here's my garage sale '83 Norco Bigfoot.. Upgrades include VO canti brakes, Sakae Super Custom half-step plus granny, Avocet Kevlar slicks, Suntour ratcheting thumbies, an NOS B15 and a funky custom .883 stem converter from the Colonel, allowing me to ditch the original boat anchor bullhorn bar combo. This will go into immediate service hauling an old skool BoB Coz
cargo trailer for local crap.

Some new pics of the 650B Combo of Rock. These were taken a couple of miles uphill from where my derailleur cable broke this morning.

Any problems getting the V-brakes to reach the 584's?. I have been sitting on the same concept, but have not hung any parts on a frame yet. It seems that the frames I want to do it on all have Suntour roller-cam mounts located someplace. I have some odd Cane-creek semi-side pulls for the project, and need to find a canti-braked frame.

My 1993 Sbike 503.



Bought it for a ridiculous price, cleaned it up and put some new tires, brake pads, pedals, saddle and handlebar on it.
It came with a hideous Acera rear mech, which I scrapped in favour of an Altus A-20 one. All the rest is still the original Altus A10 kit.
I've changed the pedals since this photo was taken, because these were intended for another project and didn't really suit this bike.

I'd be tempted to add a rack as well, but this is a very practical build.

These photos bring back lots of memories!! I need to dig out and dust off my '94 Kona Kilauea to shoot some photos. It ain't pretty but I raced, then commuted on it for almost 15 years.

Picked this up yesterday as a frame+fork+stem+handlebars. Way too small for me (18", and I need 21"+), so I'm open to trades for it, otherwise it illuminates my living room by hanging that much neon on the wall!

I might have posted a pic of this in here but I have made some changes so here is my 93 GT Zaskar Le:



It has a mostly modern drivetrain but it does see a fair amount of use, even some races.

7-speed SunTour X-1, still mostly original. i bought the purple pulleys back when they were cool. even the bashring is 13 years old.



handlebars. the bars are actually older than the bike - i had them on another bike for two years before this one. SunTour X-Press Accushift Plus shifters, yo! hydro front disc is a sop to modernity.



still can't decide what i want to do with the rear brakes - leave as-is isn't really an option, 'cause pads are hard to find. been considering Magura hydros, but i'll probably just get a good quality canti or v-brake. need to get better pads though so i don't eff up the finish on new wheel when i put it on. i'd go disc on the rear as well, but i don't have the money to have a framebuilder add the mounts and get the bike painted, and i don't want to damage the bike with one of the hodge-podge adapter systems.

considering going back to a rigid fork, but i'll want/need to have one custom built (as i want to keep the disc brake). but i really want to be able to reinstall my front Blackburn rack as well.
LOVE Them handle bars!
