Ach lots of options, it can be done sympathetically... Shiny Hope brakes would look good, and certainly not klunky looking like that XT kit... There's always the middle road, mix and match old and new.

I can't help with this - no matter how hard I try I just don't have any emotional connection with GT's. I'm sure some are great bikes but ............

:twisted:

Well i cant get fussed over Kona's or Specialized (except maybe an early FSR), also cant understand the hullaballoooooo over FAT's but there you go :)

I'm gong to build it how i want it, have a shopping list and have already bought some bits so the build path is set.

I'll bring it to a ride, those who dont like it are no getting a shot, they dont have to stand close to it, in fact dont even friggin look at it :lol:

What hopes is it youre going for ? C2's or maybe monos as they seem to have dropped a bit :?
You'll pay £150 for a set of nice ones from crc or maybe look around and see if you can pick up any of last years X2's.I think there might be a few being discounted because of hopes new +15% lever :?


Im feeling sick still from missing the nos C2's that sold a couple of days ago.
