Well, its nearly there. I've put on the following so far:

Ti Flite Saddle
GT Lock on grips
Avid SD7 Left hand brake lever
Avid SD7 Rear V-Brake
9 Speed SRAM Cassette
9 Speed SRAM Chain
Had front brake lever fixed and bled, new 185mm rotor and new pads.
New cables all round.
Velo neoprene chainstay protector.

Still to come:

new 5 bolt spider for the front disc as its bust.
hopefully at some point matching front and rear tyres.
solve the front mech mystery

Nice bike mate, i have an LTS-1 frame ready to build up at some point.

Good old RST Hi-5's, i remember them as been the poor mans DHO/Boxxers when i was at school, but i still have love for the Single crown RST's especially in that graphite colour!

Would you want a Hope Bulb Ti hub to match your front Ti?

Also got a D521 silver too.

Also, I have a NOS RockShox Super Deluxe shock sitting around, if you need it?

Cheers,
Ali

easy chief,

possibly but to be honest i've spent a lot more on this that i had originally hoped so its not top of my list.

The front rim is black, a sunn ryhno rim? or something.

rear is a silver mavic 618. ideally they'd be the same but im not that fussed.

kaiser - yep its a missile alright, nice big chunky beast! Might be interested in a rear tyre if you've got something similar. not sure whether i want black or amber walls - what do you folks reckon?
