Initial plans, after an overnight ponder, are to run m95* xtr mechs and cranks (as I already have them, and funds for new groupset parts are not forthcoming) with a 2x9 setup, and some magura martas to slow me down a bit.
Got some bargain continental mountain kings the other day, so will run with them unless it gets claggy and then I'll run it on ritchey zmax 1.7's
Stem and bars are sorted from onone themselves and I'm daring to trial a flat bar in the first instance, as I'm not a big fan of riser bars, but this may change with time....
Headset is still up in the air as it will depend on what forks I get (taper or 1.125" straight steerer)
Still looking at fork options, and wheels will be very much dependant on fork (axle) choice.
Estimating a 25-27lb target weight.
