  1. Its a great build, I have owned one of these since 1992, its not been used for a good few years while I have been a cycle snob but just recently thinking about re commissioning it with slicks as a commute bike, seeing yours has made my mind up! Thanks for all the pics and details!

    • Cheers dude. It’s a good frame and they’re a good bike. They got a bit rubbish in the mid to late 90s but the late 80s/early 90s ones are good. Yours is probably one of the last good ones!

  2. Lovely 🙂 I have a 1990 Muddy Fox I’m trying to put a pannier rack on, and like yours it has eyelets on the dropout, but nothing at the monostay (what where they thinking?) Can I ask what the mount you have around the monostay is called, and where you got it from? Cheers.

  3. That’s great – thank you. I was considering getting some mounts welded on without drilling, but your solution is much cheaper and less hazardous to paint 🙂

    I’m not sure it will work on mine as it has cantilevers, and therefore uses the cable guide, although from your picture it looks like there is clearance for the cable. One more question if that’s ok – is your monostay slightly ovalised? It looks like it might be (as is mine) – I presume that it’s not a problem? I guess that with longer bolts one could secure it around the downtube if the pannier reaches.

    • Don’t think it is ovalised, i think they did change it though throughout it’s life and between different models.

  4. That’s lovely 🙂 I’m about to start a build with the same frame 🙂 Do you know what seatpost diameter is?

    • Thanks Jerry! Unfortunately I don’t remember what the exact size is, but I do remember that I wasn’t able to find a replacement as it is a really strange size. I never did find an after market one that fit!
