Thanks for all the comments and votes everyone! :D

trxrincon - Someone got a bargin there! Luckily I already have the forks, (and some spare pairs).

...anyone got a red DCD, a clear crud catcher (also after other colours X2 for Pace and Clockwork) please and some Azonic risers? I may also be after some Specialized skewers. And does anybody know what bottle cage that is? Oh, and a 34.9mm bottom pull M900 XTR front Mech...

Thanks :D

Great plan to do a JMC tribute! Think it'll look great :)

I picked up those FSX earlier in the year ;)

Would you be happy knowing that everything except the frame, the main part, would be an exact replica?


Yep, agreed - that's why I'm having doubts and think I should just stick the '98 XTR on it. :?
