just get a screwdriver in the seattube slot . its what the framebuilder will do anyway before he puts the hone in it . if your worried about prising it too far just slip the correct sized clamp on

Looking good man. Does need some decals though and throw a nice black riser bar on while you're at it. Remember, flat bars were a failed experiment on the mountain biking time line. :wink:

New look for 2010

Gone are the xt v's

Gone are the king/bonty wheels

A bomber Z2 to replace the RS ,and discs for the braking department
Most of the XT will disappear to be replaced with Sram X.9 and the cranks might become Middleburn or XTR

The reissue porcs arent my first choice[or 2nd for that matter :wink: ,but theyre cheap and will do for now :?
A more bum friendly rolls saddle :D ,odi grips and a kore s/post complete the new line up

I must say its a bit of a cobble together,but i dont care .tis my bike and its built to do the kind of riding i do :? and thats that.
Maybe now i will have more time to make a start on a period build,maybe something along the kona line,least it will keep kona head rojo off my back :lol: :lol: :lol:

I was looking at that too but then noticed the torsion arm for the disc so I'm guessing it's to stop the mount shearing off .
