• Got a frame today, so looking for some bits.

    1. Shimano v-brake and levers, preferably something retro-90s to fit the bike aesthetic but ultimately, after something functional that will make me stop.
  • Still looking

  • I reckon I have a 90s Shimano STX groupset kicking around somewhere. What size band would your front derailleur need to have?

  • That's a good question, I'll need to get the measuring calipers out in the morning. Will drop you a PM on the groupset

  • Updated OP with new items

  • I have an XTR knocking around in the spares box, any good?

  • Yeah, that's solid, but depending on price as this budget build is already spiralling over budget (as always)

  • It won't be mad costly, basically it's just clutter. Shall I let you know the part no?

  • Yes, please send through by DM. Cheers

  • V-brakes by Shimano, 90s ideally, what's on offer

  • Talk about brakes would you want these .
