a dual pull front mech wont work on these.

Don't chop the RC31s :) especially if they're 1"

I have a Merlin Mountain with RC31s, single speed, it's one of my favourites. I swapped out th forks for some blue SIDs and they look really good wih a titanium stem ....

Love the M95x on yours. I didn't think silver components quite went on mine so ditched the mechs and wen with black brakes.

Very jealous it's an XLM"

Thanks!

i've always thought silver was a bit meh against Ti. Black and dark grey provide a lovely "industrial" feel, and i have a flash of colour from sunset rims ro break it up.

i have a few thoughts on some things i may want to tweak in future, but this is largely it.

and dont worry, these are 1" 1/8 RC31's
