Beautiful bike!! I love the build, and I think m900 was a very good choice.

Personally I'd go with the CNC cable hangers, but they both look very nice. I'm surprised shimano made that other cable hanger.... the hangers I remember from them were the shoddy flat ones with the sticker on them that came on every department store bike. Interesting to see stuff from a time when canti's were serious stuff in mountain biking.

Well done, finally there. I hope to finish my Rascal this w/e but with the kids it is impossible to get sensible amounts of time. Just the cabling and chainset to go.

i thought i would post some pics of the bike being used.
went on a ride in the peaks on saturday with some other retro bikers.
had a great day, but coming down jacobs ladder was very harsh.
the weather was really very nice, a few light showers but very nice.

after the peaks ride, jacobs ladder took its toll on my brake pads & front tyre. so after replacing the tyre and i found some spare xtr brake blocks.
went for a ride into delamere and took a photo on the way home.
the bike is brilliant, i never get bored of this bike.
went into 12-50 bikes to get some brake blocks, and they were taking photo's of the klein.
