I think instead of messing up the bolts like my front mech i will search for some washers when the time is right but to be honest the rock ring grows on me every day i look at it.
Today there is quite some progress to be reported.
First i tried on some LX break/shift combo simply because the rest is LX too but the silver break levers just don't look right and i don't need silly gear indicators at all. I don't know about you but my legs tell me when it's time to shift. They even tell me in which direction they want me to shift.
So i put on some all black Shimano XT ST-M095 units. They were on my Eldridge Grade all the wonder years and work perfectly. So why search for something that is already here and then looks superb to me?
I also attached some old Ritchey WCS grips and some Onza Pro Cut barends. The barends were up for sale for quite a while now but i guess now they are here to stay.
At last for today i put on all the missing cable outers.
I'm very pleased because it's beginning to look a little bit like a bike.
