I'm a big fan of Tioga tyres, so I was pretty chuffed to source a pair of thee on ebay.

I had no idea Dawgs were available in a 2.1" width. They wont fit the rear of my hardtail, but are going to look ace on my upcoming project. I also got an amberwall Psycho (no pic) which is inflated on my hardtail. Lovin them!

This time it was a nice(see how i start to justify it so early on in the explanation :wink: ) XT m756 front disc brake. On CRC reduced from about £100 to £34
Not a dual control so quite a bargain i thought.
Seems i got the last or of the last as theyve taken down the advert :D


Did you see why they were cheap? Euro lever set up (front is left) they had a few rears too, I think I paid the same as you for the front and about £40 for the rear.

Needed a ROTM part for one of my road bikes, so I stopped in at the big chain shop by my work on my lunch. Girl working the front was showing someone a bike, so I was checking out the parts cabinet. Low and behold, tucked way in the back corner, I see the unmistakeable hammer and cycle logo........

Sold. Funny thing is, it was hiding behind 1 1/8 threaded XT-737 and 1" threaded LX-560 headsets.

Didn't have the part for the road bike, but I left smiling.

I did ,but not till it had arrived , I went to check and found theyd taken down the ad.Pretty quickly i thought :?
Not a problem though :D im intending of selling the parts on and have already removed the hose and drained the system
This now gives me a brand spanking new XT caliper with left side[new] lever and also a brand spanking new saint caliper again with the left side lever[new]

It gets better
Last night i bought a pair of sram XX shifters for 10spd intending to upgrade to that speed and just replace the cassette and shifters (its 2x10) Today i learn i might have to change both my mechs also
Something about 'exact actuation' :?
I wasnt planning on doing an entire mech rebuild but its looking like i may have to, soI think ill be selling the XO stuff to help fund the XX bits

Next time i dump sram forever and stick to XTR :?
