After 2 1/2 years of collecting parts the frame and forks are back from being painted and the decals are applied. Now i can't decide which Deore XT M730 colour scheme to go with.

So the frame and forks are both white, i can use black hubs and black cantis or silver hubs and silver cantis. All NOS and mounted to M231 CD's.

I'd welcome any opinions...

Looks awesome - great collection of parts you have there!!

I was going to do my FRO in all white - still might but going to give turquoise/yellow a second try!

I must pick up those MA40s from you some day - sorry :oops:

Thats brilliant! You knew what you wanted(more or less) and had the patience to wait till it all came together. Hats off! Personally I hate turq ano and reckon an all black and white build would look great.

Yeh to a degree, its changed a little here or there and I certainly had to accumulate a box of other NOS parts just in case i couldn't get what i really wanted. I'll be cashing in the surplus when its built.
