I love the XT v's on it!
Plus once you have crashed it once and scratched it, for me it's like relief! It means you don't pussy it around so much and not so worried about the odd scratch or crash :D

Phase two ................

So now comes the tweaking for my perfect retro :D
First of all a pair of White Industries hubs, the rear being a Erics Eccentric Eno hub, hopefully if there are no alinement troubles, this will allow me to tension the chain with out the need of a tensioner.
For drive, a white industries Eno free wheel 18T completes the single speed set up , this is so nice its almost too good to fit ! and makes a very satisfactory click click noise :wink:
Finally a bottle cage , Ringle would have been the obvious choice, but i wanted something minimal and opted for a King cage, looks great (and seemed only right, owning one of Ron's previous Fats !)
