Thought I'd post up my main ride. I don't particularly consider it retro, but sadly the frame and bits are getting that way.

Image

The frame is a 1997 Litspeed Ocoee, built with mostly 9 speed XTR. Weighs in about 23.5 lbs. It's been lighter but I didn't find the super light kit that reliable.

:) looks rather similar to a USE! :D well i cheated and just used the clamp from my old one, the post itself was ti with a small alloy bung in the top to stop the alloy bits getting cut when tightened...

according to my kitchen scales it weighs just shy of 180g :)
