  • I love quick builds... 😊

    Found an almost complete 9 speed LX in the spares box and a set of early XT V-brakes. Wheels are donor wheels from my Scott Team Racing but that one will have to share a set with another of my 8 speed bikes.

  • Nice! If you feel like blinging it up, I got a set of vgc/nos xtr 8 speed brake/shift levers which, realistically, won’t get any use in the near future.

  • I need to get mine back in action.

  • Pubs opened again? 😁

  • Those bottle cages are 👌🏾

  • What a rad pair of bikes!

  • Thanks guys.

    @MrMister, one is a genuine Ringlé, the other's a replica.

  • Fantastic! Never seen those bottle cages before, they look perfect on this frame.

  • Great work on both @WimVDD Looking forward to seeing the finished result.

  • Man, these Kili's are soo good. Big inspiration for my Raleigh. Thanks @WimVDD

  • Thanks guys. Have some time tomorrow to work on it. Just need to order a 9 speed chain and cassette for it. And some wider bars. Right now there's an Answer Taperlite on it (early nineties) but it'sa bit narrow.

  • Never seen these bottle cages, @vp1337? They're iconic. Ringlé H2O cages. I had one on my 1993 Trek. I bought some a couple of years ago but they're replicas.

    This is a close up of a "real" one.

  • The one on my Trek. I had a Ringlé ti seatpost QR too. Hubs, stems and other parts were beyond my budget. 😉
