A killer bit of bartering thanks to this forum has meant I now have an 8speed XTR cassette to hump a chain up and down.
Sooooo the thumbies are staying on my commuter and there's now a pair of 3x8 XT rapidfires tucked under the hope levers. (I say leverS, the rear is still absent)
Wheel choice is now made too :) given up on finding perfect second hand hoops so going for new builds now. More green and black ano bits ;)

This build should be called 'project indecision' or something?!
Ordered the wheels this afternoon, the company in question had slapped a huge discount on some silly light all black pre built wheels so I bought them on impulse instead of the planned custom built jobbies.
Bit of a deviation but should look good and save a heap of weight.

Still, at least that's the last big expense out of the way!

These things are stupid light! Won't register on the bathroom scales!
Claimed 1750g a pair, feel less!

Looking good! Can't wait to see some more completed pics. I take it there's a disc tab welded on by bob jackson?
Did someone say instagram...? :D

No issues so far anyway, everything's going together well :D

It looks frickin ace, I may have missed them, but what forks have you gone for?
Ps:
If you need any pads for those brakes, get in touch.

Thanks :wink: I'll need pads for the rear as they are a bit abused.
Forks are fox F100's with the sliders resprayed in a metallic black and decal-less.
