    One from the outhouse.....

    Marin Bear Valley 1989, with mountain LX groupset only available that one year, found the frameset online and sourced the groupset bit by bit until it was a bike once more

    Roberts 26" wheel snow leopard, came to me in pink glitter with a horrible mix of components for only £50 from an auction.

    Promptly sitripped it and Sold all the XTR M900 off it then spent the profits on new paint and decals.

    Then chose My favorite workhorse groupset - Deore DX - and set too making it a bike again,

    Enjoy

    The XT derailleur still retains its original warning sticker regarding 28t max, it'll stay as long as it can .... then it will just fall away into the long grass, the mechs are still available for $239 - with sticker.
