right I shall hunt for a mint set of XT spec canti levers and a pair of XTR cantis then
Thanks for the kinds words chaps. Yes the grey Dura Ace shifter covers just didn't go with my colour way (does the grey colour go with anything?). So I bought some Plasti-Dip and dipped them. As a first attempt they aren't perfect but they'll do for now and they work perfectly.
Just back in from a ride.
I've never ridden a Aluminium Zaskar before (My other Zaskar is Carbon), and boy do these things take off when hammered. Out of the saddle thrashing is blisteringly fast and I'm wondering whether to find an Alloy Zaskar for racing now. Once in 'tonking' mode the old boy really flys, hills just seem to disappear.
The tyres have to go as they are stupid. They look cool and sound amazing on tarmac...but they are stupid. I got home and found a pair of Conti Twisters so they'll be fitted soon (silly light too).
The saddle and stem have been lowered so there is now a few cm's of steering above the stem, but I'll trim it after a few rides.
Good stuff though and an absolute pleasure to ride.
