Very nice. Seeing this has given me ideas for where my NOS disco might be destined for. Can I ask if that is Matt's old disk drive?

Thanks guys for the comments.

Rick yes it is Matt's old disk drive (kingroon)
I have had it since new year but only just managed to get it fitted today as I needed a rear cassette
The new front wheel is a mavic 217 cd ceramic too on a silver gt Hadley hub (32h) radial laced.

I may have gone a bit ott on this some may say but this is how I would have liked it bitd
Thought about changing bars/stem/post to black syncros with black ringle holey titanium qr's
But I have another I could try that with! :shock:

I 100% agree,with that I love the black rear end in contrast with the aluminium frame.

Great Dave!
Here is the RTS from my friend Ryan that was a gift from us (me and friends) for his birthday last year.

Irvin,
That is really nice what a great gift!!

Am liking those spin wheels as well.
I have all the parts for the other one just need some cash to get it all together
But I think I may go for some spinergys (the 4 spoke carbon ones)
For the wheels?
