Picked this up late last year as a whole bike...with a pretty random spec...soggy XC forks...early XT stuff..mismatched wheels..including a nice Citron Mavic.
Anyhows I have been wondering what to do with her, and because I have been having a lack of direction on my UFO build I have ended up with a good choice of parts..nearly enough for both bikes.
So I shall have started bolting bits on and shall see where we end up.
I think it deserves some decent kit, its a well made frame, of decent weight, and with some very nice touches..like the adjustable rear shock postion which seems to adjust ride height and must also change the wheelbase ( i think ) and additonal hose clips that actually hold the hose....
So far we have
FSA Orbit II headset
Planet X meteor Stem..heavy but I kind of like it
Club Roost Go Fast Riser
Mismatched Shifters 9spd XT M751 3spd LX m581. Would like another XT one.
ODI long BMX grips.

Xm 719 on Hope
Hayes 9 Carbon...not decided on brakes yet..may use XT or perhaps C2s
