Hi all,

Want to show you my 5 year old Solitaire. Used to be a disc only bike, but send it back to Chris Dekerf for V-brake mounts and a new paint job. All XTR parts are NOS except for the V-brakes. X517 rims and Tange fork are also new.

Cables are maybe a tad long. Not quite sure about the chainring, we'll see. Thanks!

Thanks. V-brakes give me a better feeling in the levers. And I think it looks better.
