    On inspection it's got limited edition Shimano Parallax hubs laced to a set of Weinmann Bontrager labelled rims .

    Gearing is Shimano stx apart from the twist grips which are due for replacement by some paddle shifters .

    And less I am mistaken a set of Campagnola flat bar brake levers .

    At the moment struggling to release the top cap bolt on the stem extender so might need to get a bit brutal with it .

    One went in our local auction today. It went very cheap. Unbelievably cheap. Needed work but would have been nice. Same colours etc. I was shocked at how light it was. That had no suspension either. One less thing to worry about.

    This is certainly the lightest MTB I’ve ever seen, a Trek 8300 composite from the nineties I think. I bought one down here not so long ago for a friend but she’s never used it, it’s just sitting there, crying shame.

    I have the exact same bike of which I bought from another CC member. Lovely, well made, surprisingly lightweight bike. Fun to ride also.

    Cheers. It is nice. Plan is when I get round to it is to get a frame respray. Even though it has been well looked after, as you can imagine, it has it's fair share of dinks and scratches.

    A bit of tinkering this morning and we now have a trigger shifter on the rear that's working ok and a set of guards .

    Next job is to do the front one and then swap the brake levers and replace the brake cables and work out what to do with that stem raiser .

    This one will be a rolling project as i want to keep on using it as i replace bits . mt.jpg
