like it 8) what spider that is for the XTR 950 crank ?


Thanks. It's the original spider.


should be the DH spider then, as the 4 arm spider was more common.

how do the tyres perform ? they look quite right for a modern classic build

Lovely 8)

I'm running a 5arm spider too, they just look more aesthetically pleasing than the 4 arm versions I think

If it's a five years old frame, surely that retro-length fork must be way shorter than Dekerf designed the geometry for?

Lovely clean looking machine.

I run 5-arm M952 on my Pace. Better looking and more freely (and cheaper) available rings. The big S as usual excelled themselves with kit that no-one can now find.

A Solitaire with Ritchey dropouts? Odd. Every one I've seen has slotted rear facing dropouts.

Surely it wouldnt need horizontal dropouts if it has an eccentric BB

Ah, the Ritchey dropout/ECBB is a new thing. The horizontal dropouts are now an option.
