All in i've done OK, she climbs like a scalded weasel, almost feels like she struggles to lay the power (and i use the term power loosely) down. Stem is a bit long at 120mm looking to swap that out for a 100mm; change out the brake levers and i dunno what else, i'm on a shoe-string. What you lot think about the Rond Magura Pro's?
Updates if and when they arrive.
Comments and suggestions welcome, although she is DONE for now until the full restoration.
