Looking good...! What forks are they?


After the PAce RC31's proving too short, i decided to go bombproof, so its a set of On One cromo suspension adjusted rigids (sporting a couple of cheeky Litespeed decals :lol: )

Not the lightest things, but still less than the Rock Shox it would of had originally, and i wanted it to be full rigid build. Just need the new stem/ handlebars/ shifters to turn up!

The frame was £400, which i didnt think was too bad actually,

A few more bits for the build are arriving, so a Moots Ti stem with NOS Litespeed handlebars are to be fitted, along with Deore XT 8spd shifter/brake units and matching XT v brakes. I think the only thing i'm waiting for now is an xtr front mech, as the 31.8 xt one i got is too small!

A few changes and just waiting for one part and then i can finish the build, decided on some eggbeaters as i use crank bros on my Orbea, also going for a dark outer chainring which i think will suit it better, and cables are now here so the final piece of the puzzle is a ti Litespeed handlebar to upgrade the fitted alloy one, depending on finish i might even try for Botm! :lol: :lol:

It will indeed have bar ends, some NOS onza units...no time to complete it so far, but my plan is to get it finished next weekend.
