Thanks guys,
The main reason I bought this bike was because it didn't need much changing,and also of the m950 groupset.

Everything works perfectly well but as always some parts are not too my taste.

Plus after the rts-1 build I had 6 months of staying up till 1/2/3am to make sure I won the parts I needed!! (am sure you all know what I mean!)

Gt Steve;if my zaskar look half as nice as yours when finished then I will be a happy boy!

Cheers fella,


The devil's in the detail, with mine I think?? and a good lashing of autosol to bring the frame up.. :D 8)

A while back, I'd have ripped your arm off for those wheels, but sadly now I have nothing to put them on.. :(

I know what you mean for sure, sitting there with a high pitched heart beat, and in euphoric state when winning!
