I got impatient over the weekend and threw a few bits on her.

Image

LX Canti's wont be staying ... should have some 986's or some kona canti's soon, not sure on the mountain LX stuff either but it was to hand so ... why not, its got a nice short cage rear and seperate shifters, if I can get a 28.6 front M735 mech I may go with that as I have a few bits of that hanging around. moneys tight again so I may eventually go with a white saddle/grips/tyres setup

Image

Mountain LX shifters were the first light action SIS that I ever used and I loved them so its nice to try them out again and ss5's are just brill levers.

Enjoy

I like that... 8)

...a man after my own heart as far as choosing a cool colour is concerned (though I really have my Coater to thank for mine!)

Very nice, those few subtle parts in orange work really well, you've got the balance just right IMO.

Yeah, I was thinking that too, tried an LX M560 series and it wasnt right so will have to keep eyes out for a silver M730 XT.

Yep, the subtle orange touches are ace.

Probably my favourite bike on here at the moment.
