One of the nicest Dolomites I have seen for a while. Love the clean XT looks!

Thanks Martin. I just got a Avocet Gel saddle in the mail, but not sure if I want to replace the Ti Flite. It matches the one in the catalog, but it is much bigger.

Thoughts?

I dont like the Avocet seat for myself by it's looks. My first retro dolomite Attitude also had the Avocet seat but there's something that doesnt look right. Might me the material it is made from.

I would suggest a nice Turbo seat or just keep the flite because you like it.

cheers,
Martin

I finally got a hold of a XT seatpost. Man, are they hard to find in good shape. The thing that sucks is I need another. :(

So THIS is the final update. It has been complete for a while and I am happy with the parts I have chosen. I went with a black components when I could, so it is a little different from other Dolomites on this site. Other choices are pure personal preference, like the Mushroom grips and Flite saddle. I went for a little lunchtime ride and it still rides like a new bike.

So here are the final-final pics.
