I picked up a 94 Specialized S-Works FSR frame/FSX fork for a relatively cheap number, so it was worth hanging some parts on it to give the bike a shot. It's only had the 'drive way' test, but I'm not sure I'm going to like the bike.
I built if up using parts hanging around from other parts bikes or cheap swap meet scores. Came out pretty darn good I think.

At any rate, I still need to fine tune things and give it a fair shake down ride, then put some miles on it to see if she's a keeper. I guess we'll see.

In the mean time, enjoy:

Tough crowd!

Umma gumma's....so it was YOU who bought those on ebay for big bucks!
Coincidence? :thumbsup:

As always, nice job. Want to trade for a PROFLEX!!!????
I got the cable hanger from Hollister. :)

No way. I wouldn't pay that much for Ummas. The ones on this bike were free. Came on another bike I'd picked up quite some time back. They're in ok shape, but not great.

Thanks. And...uh...no, no Proflex trade. :D :p

Thanks KM.
That stem found a nice home. :)

I'll be sure to flog it and report back.

I was always fascinated by that year's Speshy FSR, and I'm quite jealous seeing that built up. That's the exact bike I want to build one day...

Sweet bike. And nice collection of parts just lying around! eBay logic says you've got over $300 worth of parts in just the QR's! That's one expensive bike. ;)
Nah. If they were a color and NOS...then I'd have something for sure.
These are just beat up silver/black ones. Junk. :p

I think there are enough of these out there, you should have no problem tackling a project like this. I've seen at least 3-5 in the last six months in various sizes.

I'll have to weigh it, but this is not a light bike. :(

"...from parts hanging around the garage."

I'd like to apply to live in your garage. I'm clean, housebroken and i generally keep quiet.
You'll have to keep things neat and tidy. I suppose we can set up a fold down cot that hangs above the boxes of parts.

Plus you'd be added security, so thats a bonus. :D

Rumpfy,

Sweet - I'm an FSR fan!

Did you recolour the rear triangle to black or was that how they came back then?

You need a grey saddle to finish it off!

Mr K
Ah, thats right, you dig these huh?

The rear triangle is the correct color. SFAIK, this is how they came on the S-Works for 94. It's been the same color on all the one's I've seen anyway.

Grey saddle would be good...I have a grey Flight I suppose I could put on there.
