Having already sourced Schwalbe tyres and a slick chromed mudguard and front basket combo, Fred brought his gorgeous Tange Prestige tubed Team Stumpy in to get the XC Pro drivetrain simplified to suit the bike’s current utility commuter guise.  We went for a 1x conversion – with NOS cassette, narrow wide chainring, new chain and gear cables – plus I overhauled his hubs, brakes, BB and headset.  Not perfect, but much improved…
