    After fetching it in a hurry at night and looking at it the next day, I was not too sure whether this was a great idea to be frank:

  • Great story! Love this fork too !!

  • Many thanks!

    Little progress (but at least some progress)

    • Changed crankset to black LX and noted that the BB needs replacement, too
    • Swapped saddle, seatpost, seatpost clamp to black
    • Swapped to black grips and modern pedals
    • Cleaned the remaining drivetrain a bit


    Mounting tyres
    Replacing silver cantis with black LX
    Find 1x chainring

  • Helllll yessss! Stridsland chainring? Assuming the cranks are 94 BCD?

  • @e54 you can get stridsland chainrings at gutenbiken πŸ˜‰

  • @Eingang @vpCogworks

    I fear the LX cranks are 110? At least they are larger than the CODAs i removed

  • Can be, the first 560 LX were indeed 110. That means plenty of options for cheap though. :)

  • Tiny progress while having an hour off from child maintenance:

    • lx brakes mounte
    • Tyres swapped
    • Drivetrain cleaned
    • Temporary 1x chainring mounted

    To dos

    • replace BB
    • find black lx/coda wheelset
    • Find LX shifter/brake unit (7/8x depending on wheelset)
    • Install chain

  • Looking good. Budget option for 110 N/W rings here

  • Thanks mate

    Not sure if there was also 104 back then?

    Havent had time to measure precisely πŸ₯΅

  • Not sure if I ever owned such a fun bike πŸ€ΉπŸ»β™‚οΈ

    Chain didnt come off so for now i am ignoring the n/w chainring options

    Sachs gripshift thingy has to be replaced by thumb shifter tho. Takes too much of that golden bar

  • Okeeeej

    Found a nice wheelset (coming next week)

    And switched for a boxier stem to make handling even more compact

    Fun 🀑

  • Black wheels cleaned & mounted

    I always find it surprising(ly annoying) that people do not clean their shit before selling/shipping it.

    I would never do this, even if its a €10 item

    But maybe I am way too oldschool πŸ‘¨πŸΌπŸ¦³
