Lovely. Is that a Middleburn crank?
love these frames
Yes, it is... They make me nervous, so thin at the end! Had a non drive side crank arm with a crack in the 90s - Shimano stx RC - luckily spotted in time by a mechanic, and square tapers going loose... Plus I'd hate to damage them... I'm looking for a suitably styled 5 bolt triple crankset with splined fitting, best candidate so far, which wouldn't look out of place is a Truvativ Elita.
That is very cool. You converted those head shox forks to rigid??
nope, the fatty came as rigid forks aswell. pretty rare though.
anyone after a modern set of v brakes on their retro build? well, look no further my homies: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/365641/

My budget Kona Hahanna is now rideable!
I really regret selling my hahanna, easily one of the most fun bikes I ever had. Sadly stolen shortly after I sold it :(

Adjusted a little bit from how I bought it. The Alivio groupset will be replaced with something more modern soonish.
What's my options for good quality 26' rim brakes?
Ryde big bull
Buy my XT v brakes
More info, pics?
No need for it now but who knows?
M739 vees with the little shim pack (to stop them squealing) Don't think there are any pads though. In very good condition. Don't have any pics just now. Gimme a couple o' days and I'll sort some out. Got brifters too.
I know this more of a rigid MTB retro thread, but CRC are selling NOS Marzocchi Bomber Z3, Z4 and Z5 forks:
