I'm planning a bike holiday mid July with this bike, so I spent some time prepping it up for longer distance mixed ground travelling. First I removed the faulty STX headset and replaced it with a proper working M901 XTR version. Good to have fluid steering. As I'm spending a lot of time on the bike, I'd like to add in some more comfort to handle distance a bit better. Maybe I'm getting old. The silver Syncros is a 120mm I think, with a bit more rise than the previous one. Syncros bar ends bring some more comfort I suppose. The saddle is a more comfortable one than the original Flite, but after a 50 km testrun yesterday evening, I think the Flite sits better, strange enough.
Now I need to get some good bags for the rear carrier, an Old Man Mountain. Probably I replace the brake blocks and use a more simple crankset, this Isis set of Turbines might a bit too much.
Retrobiking is the perfect way to stay busy
