*cough* its the legendary geometry don't you know *cough*

Personally I think that XTR parts on anything other than high-mid to top end frames is odd, but whatever floats your boat. The Cindercone always looks good with a nice clean XT build IMHO.

You mean you won't be putting XTR on the Fire Mountain then Russ :wink:

Lovely Cinder Cone . . . 1996? I had the late '96 model in matte cherry red with the same decals (think it was available frame only).

:lol: Nope :) Though I do have special plans for it.

I don't know much about mid 90's Konas, I known that in '97, the CC came with STX so I would imagine that in '96 it was similarly specced?

Heck it doesn't matter at the end of the day, although older cranks such as M900 do start to look our of place (IMHO) on frames from '96-'97 onwards.

What about M950?
