I've heeded everyones advice and got the following bits...

White Industries Hubs
Two Flites, I'm favouring the Maple leaf ones...
Red Magura's and Brace
Polished Onza's

Then as much tidy black Syncros as I can afford to throw at it and some chrome Amp forks...

Also bought a matching saddle for the Dekerf Mountain!

Whichever you don't go for can I buy from you? ;-)

Black is what I would go for. Coloured saddles rarely look great (red one would look good on my RM though! ;-) )

Had this frame a while now and am in the process of getting a bush kit for it from the States...

Anyway, decided to mock it up with a few bits I've set aside... wasn't going to use Mag 21's but I think they go really well...

Rest of the build will be silver/light gold orientated with Xrays... If I can get hold of a couple of fancy mechs the build should be Shimano free...

What you chaps think?

That looks excellent!

I could sort you out with some orange bolts to match the brakes if you wanted. R
