    1995 Sunn Vertik 2

    I went up to my family's summer house this weekend to get the rest of the bike, and some tools home. Now I know how I'll be spending my spare winter evenings :D :happy:

    1995 Sunn Vertik 2

    This project has been stranded for the past 4 months, because finding a headset that fits the 27mm. cone on the fork was harder than expected. But finally one popped up in a retro mtb group, I'm in on the Facebook. And it's shiny STX :happy:

    The anti-klunk? (Show us your urban bombers!)

    Drinking wine, and listening to Queen while changing brake pads and adjusting gears - not at all a bad way to spend a Saturday evening :D

    Stuck seat post? Fill the seat tube with drain cleaner, give up after a couple of weeks, and rediscover it a few months later...

    1995 Sunn Vertik 2

    Once again my first proper bike has begun to look and feel a bit too ratty. And this time I have decided to do a complete rebuild. So I thought I would make a thread here to document the process. The project will most likely cost way more than the bike is worth. But you can't put a price on...

    What is the most high end bike you own

    Wheeler 9800. Most likely Tange Prestige tubing. The only high end parts on it yet are the XTR derailleur/shifter, and the titanium stem. But I plan on upgrading the rest piece by piece, whenever I can find something nice on the cheap. The goal is to get it under 10 kg.

    Your happy place

    My family's summer house (where I'll be spending the next three weeks :) ). My grandparents bought it back in the 70's, so I've been coming here my whole life. My mum inherited it, and recently passed it along to me and my sister - that way we won't have to pay inheritance tax when her time...

    "New" cranks and derailleurs for my Sunn. They came off of this Trek, which I got on the cheap, and am planning to make a project out of (right now I'm thinking 700c wheels and drops)
