Sooper frame but the component choice!!!!! About fifteen years apart The XT Crankset has to go and the Vee brakes with a Canti hanger is a big no no!
Riser Bars? Has to be a flat bar with riser stem, if you need a bit more height. Mech's are way too modern too.
Are you planning to swap the parts to retro era as and when?
Yeah well these are the components as bought, so certain things must go.
Just fitted thumbies, and bidding on a "proper" XT rear mech so should have that soon. I HATE the cranks, dont even understand or care how they attach themselves to the BB. I also cant stand the hubs which are xt with some really naff satin finish, oh for still having my pair of Dave Hinde built Dakars on MA40's, I loved those hoops so much. So stuff will change, BUT I actually like risers, and if thats a "no no" then so be it. This wont be a restoration thing so much as picking what ( in my opinion ) was the best from then with a few bit and bobs from now. And just one thing - there is no canti hanger, or at least not one I recognise as such.
