Seeing Chris put his up, thought I'd follow suit, to see where our builds go... 8)

Bought this over Christmas, and thanks to it being a clearance frame, it cost me next to nothing. Great service from on-one, and it was received well packed..

Managed to get some cheap RS revelations last week, and I now have a Hope mix n match headset on its way to me, as I'd heard a lot of bad things about on-one's own smoothie mixer headset.. :oops:

Trying to keep the build cheap, and robust, so wheels are Deore hubs on x317's. magura martas will be slowing me down, conti mtn kings making me roll and on-one bars and stem to try and control the beast.

M95* gearing to maintain the grey balance with the decals, and a 1x9 set up to break me in gently. Will up it to 2 or 3 x9 in the spring/summer.

Tyres....

Maybe 2.0 was a bit skinny, but I'll run with them til they need replacing.

... And these are a revelation.. :oops: :lol:

They're Revelation RL's, but that's about as much as I know... Standard QR dropouts. Anyone know what model year they are?

Ooo all coming together!

Nice choice of goodies I think (although as you say 2.0 may be a little narrow).
