Thank you very much guys!! Can I ask you a question? I need new elastomers, do you think it's better to buy some elastomers or some coil springs? I mean, with coil springs I won't have problems anymore, with elastomers I'll need new ones every while.. What do you suggest??

I'd go with the elastomers, but can't explain why.

Hi guys! I've got some new components for my Alpinestars!
First of all I've changed the elastomers for the Manitous as you suggested, now it works well! ;) thanks!
Then I changed the xt front mech with a like new xtr M900 one! Much better! So, when I saw a pair of Crank Brothers Eggbeater in blue I found them perfect for my build!
Finally I purchased a pair of Sram Xrays and blue Pace Renthal RC 130 bars!
Many thanks to Retro Spud, ishaw, Locketirol and Chris!
I've got some new components in mind, but for now I can wait! ;)
Here some pics!
