why did you choose to run the king with the grease ports on the side?


mmh, good question? I think there was a mark from a earlier cable housing which I put under the downtube.

Three items are changed:

1. Specialized Prolong saddle
2. Ritchey Vantage rims to the XT hubs
3. T-Gear skewers

The saddle is so great for my ass 8)

Cheers

I rode this MERLIN on the occasion of the fortress meeting. Although one size to tall, it handled nimble, offered great comfort downstairs :shock: and brakes just awesome. That is not ordinary; this bike is just an awesome build and fantastically adjusted in every detail. Ride on, Micha!

There are no WTB hubs more, only black XT. They work more better than the WTB.
