    Hmmm ...

    I'd have a much easier time getting some trinitrotoluene than finding a set of those

    OK, the hunt is on ...

    Thanks for the direction

    BTW: Nice bike -

    When they dumped the biplane fork for the lugged one in 85 they changed the geometry. It looks like the 87 - 89 welded frames were different from the 85 - 86 if you look close. 90 - 93 were then again different also. It really is hard to keep up with all the changes.
    A garage full of steel frames means happiness.

    My contribution to the Specialized God's.

    It has a very nice purple to blue fade with neon lettering. I'll get a better shot in the sunlight in a few days.

    This is my 1986; 1X8. Picked up the frame for $30 and built it with some parts I had laying around + a couple of necessary purchases. There's nothing original on it, but the frame rides absolutely like a dream. Better yet, I'm beating some of my old PR's on it, both up and downhill (faster than my On One Inbred 29'er).

    There is something about this bike that feels very right. It just clicks. The fit, the ergos... everything fits like a glove for me. Coming from a BMX background, the ride reminds me of how my old General Osborn Pro felt - like it was built for me.

    I need to upgrade the seat to what I normally ride with (WTB) and I'm going 1X9. 1X8 is okay, but I don't like the jump from 26T to 34T in my gearing. Anyhow, I ride this nearly every day at my local trails while all my modern bikes just hang. It's interesting how this bike just gets around people on much more modern bikes.

    I've kinda been searching for a modern, steel, budget friendly 26" XC style rigid frame set with horizontal dropouts and cantilever bosses - you really can't find these days. Then it dawned on me that these vintage frames were EXACTLY what I was looking for!

    Still trying to figure out the year.

    Still lots of work to do. Need a black Zoom bar, a proper seatpost, build a front wheel with the Hugi hub on hand, etc.

    Deepest and most sincere appreciation to a certain MTBR member (who will remain nameless until he says otherwise) for providing the perforated gray Prolong saddle and real, genuine, from his own garage set of Ned Overend Zoom bar ends.

    Here it is so far. Still a few pieces to acquire and afix but ...

    simple, unpretentious and close to the heart. I was going to say "post it on the 29er forum" but .. i would be wrong.

    It's amazing the compliments I get on this bike, especially from those on carbon fiber and hydroformed aluminum with long travel suspension. At first it's, like, WTF? then, it's like, "Oh, I get it..."

    Just ordered the 9 speed parts I needed to do the full conversion. Looking forward to having that extra gear I need for certain climbs.

    It's is a 1992. I have the same color scheme bike. My buddy bought it new and later gave to me a several years ago.

    Not that it matters now, auction is over. You did get a decent number for it though. Not too far off from original retail.

    At any rate, just explaining to UJ why your posts were pulled. I know its just bikes and just a bike forum...but somethings are just kinda discouraged. Nothing personal against you I don't think.

    I'd hardly call that disparaging. Everyone is giving props to the guy over a bike that isn't even his anymore. I just find that kinda weird and figured other posters should know.
    When he first posted it here, I was excited to see the bike and gave it the thumbs up.
    Still a cool bike, hope the next owner enjoys it.

    what a drama queen
