I had some of those older XT cranks on my bike as original equipment. They're good for what they are but the XTR's look like they will fit nicely.

The headset color was darker than I thought, but it actually matches nicely with the DBR logo blue. I just wish the headset logo was a bit less visible.

Jagwire Ripcords come with these greenish yellow cable end caps.
Image

What do you think of these purple skewers?
