    Default My bike diary

    From the oldest...

    Assama Rockline Comp. I bought it as a frame with RS Mag 21 forks way back in about 1996 and built it up. It's been built up a few different ways since.

    1999 Norco VPS2 that i bought as a frame and built up in 2000.

    Santa Cruz Nomad that i bought in 2006. Pretty much the only things left from the original build are the forks, frame and seat. Everything else has been replaced with different bits going from the version with the XTR cranks to the version with the RF cranks.

    Fuji Team road bike that i bought second hand of a work mate for an absolute bargain.

    Sanderson Life 853 steel hardtail i bought last year. Originally it had Fox F100X forks and Hayes HFX discs but i hated the forks and wanted to try out the new XT discs instead so they are on there now.

    The Devinci Magma isn't mine, but my gf's.

But that still leaves the shifting cable thing unanswered...

    Nah only one Nomad. I just put different parts on it after having it for about 8 months.

    The changes were...

    Wheels - DT Swiss FR6.1D rims/NSB 20mm front hub/Dice Roulette rear hub/DT 14g spokes/Continental Diesel tyres ---> Mavic Crossmax SX/Maxxis Minions tubeless
    Stem - Truvativ Husselfelt ---> Syncros AM
    Bars - Truvativ Husselfelt ---> Answer ProTaper
    Shifters - 06 X9 ---> 07 X9
    Front Derailleur - Deore ---> XTR
    Rear Derailleur - 06 X9 ---> 07 X9
    Brakes - 06 Juicy 5 ---> 07 Juicy 5
    Seat Post - Easton EA50 ---> Thomson
    Cranks - 06 XTR ---> RF Atlas
    Rear Shock - Fox DHX-C 5.0 ---> CCDB
    Cassette & Chain - 06 SRAM PG-990 ---> 07 SRAM PG-990

    I think that's everything.

    Most of the bits i swapped out went onto the GF bike.

    Yeah i still have them all.:)
