    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!

    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.

    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.

    Don't worry GoB, I never take shortcuts - they're usually longer and waste time anyway. I asked in hopes I'd learn that the RS/threadless combo was in fact used at some point.

    Even if I went with threadless for now, I'd be doing either 1 or 2 since all I need is the proper length 1 1/8" threaded steerer.

    I believe i've seen one incarnation of T's Raleigh w/ threadless and a blue tioga stem. I was never a fan of 1 1/8 threaded stuff.

    Colker1,
    You have seen that but I believe it was with a blue Showa/Tioga suspension fork. At least that's how I remember it.

    I vaguely remember reading that the Ti on these frames was built by Litespeed, and later by Merlin. Any idea how durable these frames were? I'm guessing not very.

    That's most unfortunate.
    You should have reinforced those joints with appropriately tinted duct tape.

    I should have, but they came to me broke. I had Mike Augspurger fix one and Steve Potts fixed the other.

    Funny. Eric means NOW, just so you know. If you prefer silver to blue, PM me. I just picked one up for a specific project, but I may not use it after all.

    I do. I mean as of right this moment, there is one for your bike available. I have one on mine and its actually a decent stem.

    Thanks for the "heads-up" on the stem.
    Things are coming along - need a few more items like grips, bars and bar ends but progress is going well.
    Now trying to decide if I should rebuild my disk - currently has a Sun Chinook rim - or simply re-true and tension it. If someone has a correct wrench thy are willing to lend/rent, I'll certainly return it.
    Thanks again and stay well

    Swap rims and its unlikely it'll ever true up the way it should again.
    That said, if you really want to take it on, I have the wrench for it.

    That stem has been taunting me for a while, so I'm glad you nabbed it.

    Nice project. What's the story on that? I just skimmed through, but was that your frame in the past and now you've got it back?

    In 91 it was all threaded. 92+ was threadless. I also need some blue bar ends if you find some extra...

    I might have a steerer and crown for you, if you decide to go threaded after all. Let me know what length fits best if you're interested.

    I'm one step closer to finding out if in fact it is my old bike, having recently learned from where, but not whom, the most recent "previous owner" got it. Still working on finding out some further info, particularly if my LBS can find their vintage receipts especially after suffering a fire.

    If I come across blue bar ends, I will pass on the info to you.
    Thanks

    That would be great.

    Head tube is about 4 1/8" long (105mm) so a steerer about 5" would be perfect or one of any length which is threaded to within 4" of the crown would work fine.

    Thank you for the help
