definitely the look i'm after ;) rides quite nice as well. just need to sort out the grips, pedals, seat collar and front shifter/chainring situation.

looks like i need to service the left leg on the fork. i can pump it up but losses all pressure after a few hours. :(

matched up the XT thumb shifter with an appropriate XT front mech. ;)
also threw on a set of XT pedals till i decide if i want to go with something else. perhaps something wider, but nothing too clunky. and i swapped out the CK silver stem cap with a nice black RF one.

only thing outstanding that needs to be addressed is a proper sized seat collar, servicing the fork, as well as finding a light weight bash guard and removing the unused outer ring.

other than that i'm really loving this ride. 8) dare i say almost as much as my Merlin. :shock:

Shifted my set of RF Turbine IB from the Cirrus to the DeKerf as I needed a compact set for the DeKerf set of chainrings I got. :D Also put on a new longer chain to see if I could get a 3x1 setup going and it worked. Also sporting a set of XT M730 pedals and Salsa Lip Lock now. :)

The Cirrus is now sporting a set of RF Turbine LP in ano red. ;)
