Result! Looks like a belter! Build it to use bud! They ride so well once you've got them sorted (you tend to sit right over the bars if you run flats hence why i went for risers). Worth every penny! Did mine modern with a few retro touches, tyres, XTR chainset, Charge brown spoon etc otherwise full XTR, Ritchey WCS stem, thomp's post and Mavics. You'll be amazed how well it climbs and how quick the front end pops up. Keep us posted with pics.
Wicked build man! What kinda of weight does yours come out at?
Can't wait to ride mine. Used to have an RC200 F2 but I got bored of only being able to ride 1" forks and not being able to find any decent 1" boing on eBay so I sold it on. I've heard F8's are a much nicer ride anyway and I'm so glad I can swap the forks out when/if I want as I know Pace's can be a bit hit and miss sometimes.
Think i'll go for old XTR this time too as i preferred the old matte gunmetal stuff (m960?). Had SRAM XO on my last ride (Scott Scale LTD) which was great, but a real bugger to get the shifters back together if you took em apart..
