seatpost = american classic
handlebars = specialized aluminium
stem = unknown titanium
grips = specialized autopilot
shifters = xt thumbshifters
front mech = xt
rear mech = xt
cassette = xt 7 speed
brakelevers = xt
headset = specialized direct drive 1 inch
forks = specialized FS future shock , bontrager crown
hubs = xt m730/2
rims = mavic 236
brakes = xt
qr = all xt
pedals = xt spd`s
tyres = specialized storm control
cranks = early grafton (left this till last as i know it will come up ) :wink:

special thanks to the gentleman i got it from (who shall remain nameless)

Oh Slim!

Aren't you gettin yerself a nice little stable together!

Great build again and nice details with the bolts...

Different stem maybe? That's not a negative criticism by the way...!
