This bike gave up all it's XT/ Avid goodies for a new to me FS build soooo.....I went thru all the parts I have laying around from owning 14 bikes and upgrading/changing things and brought this back to life as my offroad SS bike. 34/16 gearing. Started life as 9spd HT...........

Oh, I am. Have had other SS offroad bikes so I'm prepared with my alternate attack plan for no gear trail action. I have another SS cog like in your avatar with 18t if it becomes necessary.

The white industry freewheels put the shimanos to shame. The white uses a sealed rebuildable bearing. I have torpedo'd so many shimanos whereas a White is almost bulletproof. It may cost 3 times as much but worth every penny.

Thanks for heads up. If I blow my 2 up then of course, it'll get replaced with something stronger.

Thanks. I haven't crashed any of them beyond use so they get recycled(pun) into something else. Always one short of how many I need, as the saying goes.............

I have some more oldies to post up yet. Haven't added the guitarbike yet (1995 Trek Y-22 full Deore 9spd resurrection) stay tuned.........
There was one of those for sale locally the frame only. I thought about buying it for the 85.00 they wanted. Frame needed stripped and powder-coated pretty badly though.

I paid 150 for a very low mileage freshly pivoted and painted frameset with the Fox Alps4 shock. I almost bought another one before finding my 2002 Giant NRS frame, which is where the XT/Avid stuff went to from the Supergo in this thread.

Old version of Panaracer Fire XC Pros that had the smaller orange lettering on the sidewalls. Newer ones have bigger white lettering.
