Starting the process of hanging bits on the Rocky Mountain Avalanche. Not all parts are correct vintage but then again I've never really given a rats patootie about that in the past, so why start now!
Deore cranks, NOS, with NOS Race Face bash guard and Sakae Ninja granny ring. The bash is surely not correct vintage, but I want to ride this bike and the technical trails around here don't like low bottom brackets and 46 tooth big rings. And I'm a fat slob that can't push a big ring. Yeah...that too.
Deore DX rear derailleur. Short cage. I picked this one because it has patina. That's French for it's got scratches on it. Duh!
Dia Compe 986 brakes. I assembled these out of a bin of salvaged 986 parts I snagged on fleabay cheap.
Ritchey Logic brake levers and Deore XT thumbies. These levers are also patina'd out, and the shifters are NOS, although the clamps are not, and they are pretty faded. Again, that French word applies.
