Silver is much better .... very cool bike and great built, mate.

Regarding the seat post, didn't the XT come at 33cm max.? Now i am riding a 425cm Syncros in my 20" Atitude and have at least 10-15cm left, knowing that the frames tend to crack near the seat bolt.

How much is left inside the tube?

So when I was changing the wheels and adjusting the brakes, I set the seat post higher so I could clamp onto it with the bike stand. I do that b/c I don't want to clamp where it says "Deore XT" for obvious reasons. I took it outside for pictures before adjusting it to the correct height. I did measure this morning and it is inserted almost 3 inches above the limit line.

No, black is much better :wink:

Nice bike!


Thanks. I like them both. I liked how the black was different from the other builds. However, these silver rims look pretty sweet.

i was the same in the past, always used black because it supports the colors so much, but the annoying braking off the rims quickly just put me off so i returned to the classic silver look.
