Back Up's!

I have enough bike parts to do a 2nd bike and we all know how useful is a back up bike when primary bike is down.

Let's do a check list:
  • Frame: n/a
  • Fork: Manitou SX-R 80mm '01, Manitou Axel Elite 100mm '05 (OEM), Marzocchi Comp ETA 105mm '06
  • Headset: FSA Orbit XLII '03
  • Stem: Roox Danny's Stem '98
  • Stem Spacers: Woodman carbon
  • Handlebar: StarBar XC2 '00
  • Barplugs: X-Lite Ti Bike Candy Blue (old) and Red (new)
  • Brakes: Formula Oro k18 (f&r), SRAM 7.0(v-brake)(f&r), Magura HS-11 (r)
  • Crankset: Shimano LX
  • Chainrings: Shimano LX 22t and 44t
  • Chainring bolts: Shimano
  • Bottom Bracket: n/a
  • Pedals: n/a
  • Shift Lever: SRAM Gripshift Rocket (HalfPipe) '00, SRAM Trigger X9 '08
  • F-Der: Shimano Deore, Shimano LX
  • R-Der: Shimano XT RD-M760-SGS (hand "Dremel"ed)
  • Chain: n/a

  • WheelSet: Mavic 321/DT champ./Dt Cerit(F)
  • Hub: DT Swiss 340 Disc Rear 135mm
  • Tires: 14 tires to choose from...
There's a Giant Escaper '92 bike near me for 156€ and i think there's a Cannondale CAAD3 or 4 in a "junkyard" far from me...

I really want a HT bike to keep it simple and direct. Non of FS complications and weight. Just a simple back up bike.

But then again... I don't know if i want a alloy frame or a steel frame. A love steel but i never possessed an old high-end alloy frame. I'll let the price decided for me. :)
