Well...time's moved on a bit and I thought the Hot was for a bit of an update/ massive thread resurrection. It's the first time I've seen this thread myself for ages, it's funny how naive the build seems to me now. I vowed never to sell it but it's been cosseted and mostly left to one side as a result, mostly due to another stack of bikes coming, staying and going since, as well as the usual life stuff in general. This was the one that drew me into RB so a bit of a milestone really, or a financial curse depending on how you look at it
Anyway, fast forward and the rebuild is finally now in full flow. Wheels are now some rather nice PMP hubs on grey 217's and there's a X-Lite Ti bar now, courtesy of some gents on here. I've fitted some 7/8 speed XC Pro shifters that I've been hoarding. Tyres are strictly so I can move the thing around - I know the sort of rubber I need but finding them may be a challenge! Then I need to sort the chainrings, cables and add mechs, I could use M900 but fancy something a bit more boutique.
I'm still 50:50 on the pace forks (the last thing I swopped on the bike a couple of years back). I do have a nice Kelly unicrown fork that I could use as an alternative, possibly colour matched in silver. I think it would be a nice alternative to a P2 these days.
I promise to update this in less than 8 years this time.
Several bikes, one supportive lady and still trying not to buy anything else!
