    ...Got a picture of your M600?

    Posted this already in the retro mountain bikes thread but I can always cross post!

    Cannondale 1993 M500 framset picked up for 45 quid postage, so managed to get some Deore LX bits, as well as an XTR rear mech to go 3x9. Deore LX/Mavic wheels with Maxxis 2.2 Holy Rollers.

    I've got an order in for a new headset, quill adaptor (...not sure how that's going to look) and some cruiser bars. Eventually would like to see if I can squeeze some 65mm guards of the top.

    I've got a donor bike that I'm stripping a crankset off, just need to get the Octalink BB out first - the dark blue/ grey cranks should go nicely I think.

    But first, just get it riding!

    Stripped some parts off another bike and began putting bits together. Having problems with the bottom bracket from the donor bike so not sure what I want to do about having very mismatchy stuff on there.

    Sorry about the valve alignment on the back! 😅

    Never took myself as someone who cared about that sort of thing...

    Oh damn, the colour is great - was honesty expecting blue but this is pretty damn nice.

    Fits 2.2s clearly which is nice, lock ring on the headset comes off but the next bit down feels a little seized.

    Wow. That is very quite sort of purple.

    Looking at different stem/handlebar options and getting to a point where I have no idea what to do between 25.4mm quill and bars and a 31.8mm setup + quill adaptor.

    Has anyone got either any words of wisdom either way?

    And if anyone has anything that matches the above in their parts bin that they could do without?

    Ooh, what sort of rack is that?

    Very pretty commute this morning (away from cars).

    Looks amazing - what bars and basket are those? Impressive you managed to keep the stem as well.

    Sounds like something from a couple of pages back in the ****** thread...

    Second thoughts... I don't really want to out anyone, to everyone.
