Oh wow, great going that. You do know the tracks - shows its all about the rider not the bike.

Just fitted some XT Vs (cheers Dickyboy) and had a little tinker.
Coming in at about 8.3kg/18.3lbs - not bad considering I've not made any effort to build it light. The ti Hope/Mavic wheels and IRC tyres help a lot. I could probably drop a pound with lighter bars/stem, replace the 1/8th chain and lighter inner tubes.

Just waiting for some drier weather to take it out - too nice to ruin in gritty slush, that's what the Dialled Alpine is for :wink:

I'll get some nice photos when the sun comes out :roll:

Up on Dartmoor today, giving a shakedown ride with the newly fitted RC30s. Ye gads they are very rigid!
Swapped the tyres for some Specialized Team Control and Master tyres - 1998 vintage, so spot on for the bike. Also put a rather nice RF Deus Xc stem on and an old Flite while it's still winter. ;)
