    Question re: parts for Raleigh JT Sig build ...

    Some of these parts were originally on my bike but I kept them before making the HUGE mistake of letting the frame slip away.
    Well, they will soon be reunited (about a week's time) and progress will be posted.

    Here's what I have so far ...



    Derailleurs, seatpost and other bits located. As the bike will be a "rider" no part except the frame is pristine.

    Yeah - figured it should go back on the bike it originally came off of.

    I could always use another one if one becomes available

    Lookin for some "Dawg" tires for my foam bike ...

    I don't think the Ritchey ZMax WCS (red compound) or Ground ControlS that I have would be the best choices for the build and the Panaracer Smoke Lite Comps are on the Mongoose.

    Scouring EBay, Craigslist, here and Retrobike but nothing so far.

    Anyplace else to look?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Need a little more patience than that, Paul. Pinkbike is the only other option. I would consider FirstFlight's Timbuk2. I love them!

    Patience? Drat!
    Firstflight is a great site and never looked at Pinkbike but will try both.
    Thanks once again!

    Should have thought of Firstflight. Just ordered a bunch of '93 MBA and '92 Dirt Rag mags from Jeff.

    I have to agree, the Timbuk 2's from First Flight are really good tires.

    Wife says a box from TNT Shipping has arrived.

    After 31 years together she no longer asks "What's inside?"

    Building it with XTR and Rock Shox.
    Got up early to begin (it's Mothers Day so didn't want to incur extra wrath from wife) and realized that while I have 4 sets of Rock Shox Mag 21 and one Mag 20 and extra crowns with steerers in both 1" and 1 1/8" both threadless and threaded, the one I want - a 1 1/8" threaded steerer for the Tioga T- bone stem - is too long. The threaded section ends above the top of the head tube.

    Choices are:
    1) re-thread and cut this steerer;
    2) find someone who needs the long threaded steerer/crown and has a shorter one willing to trade;
    3) use the threadless steerer with either Synchros or Tioga threadless stem

    Number 3 is easiest since I have the pieces in hand or can readily get them but not sure if it will be sacrilege since I don't remember a "threadless/Rock Shox" combo.

    What say you?

    I'd throw it together threadless, so you can ride it now. Then see if you can swap with someone later and throw the threaded one on during winter down time? Cool frame BTW.
