wicked nice. :thumbsup: what bars are you using? is that an MRC fork?

my 1994 Rhygin Ra is currently up at Chris Igleheart's shop stripped down to the frame awaiting horizontal dropouts and a traditional New England segmented fork. I posted a photo in the Winter Projects thread, but here it is again in its last days as a geared bike:

'96 Trek 950

USA Made steel frame, bought on ebay for $65 shipped. Previous owner had horizontal dropouts welded on, removed all traces of geary bits, and repainted the frame. My 2nd attempt at an offroad drop bar build.

Origin 8 Gary bars
generic adjustable stem (trying to dial in fit for bars)
a custom stem will likely be required, lots of rise and little reach!
Tektro linear pull levers (coming this week)
Avid SD-5 V-brakes
Salsa seatpost
Specialized cranks
UN-52 BB
marin rigid fork(will eventually be replaced with Kona P2)
Cane creek headset
Crank Bros.Mallet pedals
Bontrager gel saddle
Surly/Rhino lite rear wheel
Amp research/Mavic front wheel
WTB MotoRaptor 2.4 tires
Salsa 36T chainring
ACS 20T freewheel

Haven't taken it offroad yet, still trying to dial in the bars, but hopefully soon!

1999, Generation 1 Inbred SS, sizing is 19.5in., tubing is Reynolds 853.

Have bought & sold dozens of bikes over the years, but this one has stayed!

Has been built and stripped down about 100 times, I just can't seem to bring myself to part with it. Especially now that it has a baby blue 456 brother in the stable...

Old photo of an old standby: '95 Manitou HT. This is the rig's final form, and it's still pretty much just like this:

Manitou Easton ProGram frame
1990 King headset
Manitou Black 100 (yes, I know)
Sweetwings 180's
Avid Ultimate levers to Arch Supreme brakes
Manitou/Onza post
WTB SST.98 saddle
White Ind to Mavic rims via DT spokes
Avid SAAGO stem
Singulator

Cracks?

Have you checked the headtube for cracks recently?:eek: Those things are notorious for being wall hangers because of cracked headtubes.

Good looking bike though!:thumbsup:

Wow skinnyhippy, that first-generation Inbred is great! It's a classic already, and its legacy will do nothing but grow ;)
