Nice to see some progress. Looks really nice with the revelations.

What's next on your shopping list? Or have you got most of it now?

I have everything for it now I think,

Only dilemma is whether to run xtr m95* cranks to match the grey, or tune fastfoot cranks, for a bit of extravagance..

Either would be a more than worthy choice... Think your personal preference will have to take over.

I'll offer both cranks up, in a bit, and see which I prefer. Would rather the xtr's got used and abused...

:D looks spot on!

Glad mine came with the seat stay rear dropout... Looking at your picture I doubt my mono m4s would of fitted.

Cheers Chris, really happy with how it's looking now, and even my fears of the tyres being a bit skinny, have now gone, they look fine...

I did some frame measurements for Nick, before I bought his Magura's,
Top tube is 23.5"
Down tube is 27"
Seat stay is 20"
Chain stay is 17"

And it would appear there's only about half an inch in it, whether you run seatstay or chainstay routing for the rear brake.

Nah, it's like a fake suedey finish and red underside - I bought it from cyclesurgery about a year ago. Seemed to be the right choice for this bike, from my parts stash.. 8)
