Indeed, however all i was stating that it is possible that he had more than one dual slalom bike.
This does not look like it is the same bike to me.
It has different "JMC" lettering on the top tube also (why would you bother changing this?)
Moreover, i can understand changing components when they break, however downgrading from M900 XTR drivetrain to XT seems odd for a pro bike with backing from Shimano!?
I would be bidding on this bike at the drop of a hat if it were correct in every way - for the kind of money that its up for now i would want it to be original and not have to search for the many parts it is missing.
Still a very very cool bike with my favorite all time rider as its previous owner!
