OK, the goodies are beginning to arrive...

Image

Front hub is barely marked, I think it was probably built up but never used. Rear mech was advertised as medium cage, but it's not, although price was reasonable and it's in OK nick, so I'm not really complaining.

Thinking I'll stick with M750 for the cranks, possibly M751, although I keep thinking about Turbines for some reason...

Watching a couple of sets of forks as well, we'll see how that goes.

I did, but not garish enough for me!

I'm either going to keep costs down and pick up a rear XT hub and rebuild a wheelset I've got, or go loud and pick up something anodized... Saltyman's green rims on his DOGS BOLLOX are calling to me!

Slight progress on the Moho...

Red Marzocchi Z1 QR20s (still need to build the wheel), Kore stem and Azonics PDW bar.

Measured up the Maguras - not surprisingly too short, so time for some new hose, blood, olives and whatnot.
