ok two more additions to make, when i get 5 mins.

got an M960 XTR front mech w00000000000t :D
also be adding a set of RC-38 LTs to the front end :D

if only i could get an M965 left hand hydro dual control lever to go with the right, and a better rear wheel to replace the LX one ;)


fingers crossed i'll get the time this weekend to make these changes :D

i already have a pair of those levers sat gathering dust lol.

they aren't however XTR :wink: not being a snob as i never thought i'd own XTR kit as it has always been way out of my price bracket, no problems with the LX kit on it just a bit mis-matched with the other nice blingy bits lol.

Looks great.

I'm thinking of doing a bit of work with mine.

Ideally I'd like some decent forks, as the bushings are worn on the Judy T2s, resulting in a bit of flex within the fork.

With a decent set of forks, though, I'd probably need to go to disk brakes.

So...........where did you get your rear disk mount?

and you don't need to go to discs, there are plenty of good forks about that still have canti bosses.

Bit of an odd request this, but would you mind taking a close up of the point where the shock joins the rear link, please?

I took my bike into my LBS yesterday for a few bits and pieces and they reckon the spring has worked loose and is now eating away at the linkage.

They're going to take a good look on Tuesday and tell me if it's salvageable, but if I had a close up of yours I could see how it's meant to look (I appreciate you no longer have the spring on your set-up)

Many thanks

Phil
