wheels now replaced with a set of syncros bigbox on shimano disc hubs.

When my new forks arrive this will have a set of hope mono minis fitted with a custom rear caliper mount.

decided to stick with the avid v's and the deore xt wheels, as i'm struggling to find a front hope mini that matches the rear i have.

just got a set of ano purple tektro t-2 brake boosters off ebay.

and a close up of the brake setup

i know the tyres are a little bald, but they came on the wheels with new tubes, just put a cassette on and put straight on the bike.

i'll be getting some new tyres fitted this weekend, so keeping these on till then, plus getting them changed at the shop i dont need to worry about getting rid of these.

the new addition to the front.

the forks worked great for about 40mins, then decided to lose all air and drop onto the bottom out bumpers, so i'll have to strip them to see whats wrong/broken.

stripped the forks down and found the bolt on bottom of air chamber needed resealing, so used some insta-gasket on it.

the othe leg had a snapped cir-clip that held everything on the internal push rod, quick rummage in parts box found a replacement.

now the forks work great and get full travel.
