Rings from this guy:

http://www.homebrewedcomponents.com/store.php

I've had 3 from him - standard 110bcd, XTR specific, and this Uno ring. Lovely CNC machining work, and his prices are really reasonable even with postage from the USA.

.......and he's offering 10% off all orders at the moment. 8)

Since I damaged my USE SUBs (hopefully fixable - they're being looked at as we speak) - I put some cheapie Manitou's on the Global to keep it running. But i've been on the lookout for something nicer.

I sold my old RC36 Stealths on here a few months ago as I thought they were surplus to requirements - Doh!

Luckily some 100mm travel RC36 Proclass 2 lockouts came up last week - I offered the guy £80, and they were mine. Local too :D

So fitted 'em and just taken the bike out for a shakedown ride.
I must say they are very plush - more so than the RC36 Stealths. They also have a heavier spring in which is good for me :lol:

So, IF the SUBs are fixed, I might sell them on, as I actually think the Pace suit the ride of the bike better.

In a wood in Devon today:

Excuse the stem spacers - I'm just trying to work out the best stem height before cuttign the steerer tube down.
