if black or silver is the biggest decision, then you have little to worry over.....well done on the patience thing too, it will all be worth it!......that will be some first ride!.....






i'd go classy silver with the ringle stuff and bar ends.......rigid too ,just for the record, but it has to be your decision.... :D

Sorry about that - might be best to get them posted :?

As for colours I'd go for silver with the hubs and I'd try the black brakes to experiment getting some balance with the black/silver/white - the silver cantis may get lost on the white frame. The black hubs really need the black crank IMO and the silver matched your Ringle QRs.

I'd consider a white Turbo saddle (prefer them on YETIs to Flights) andl I'd avoid any coloured stuff - use the black hyperlights.

Tyres - amber wall ONZAs 8) , if not then please sell them to me!!, (needed for the DONKIS'!)

Wow! I don't think I've ever seen so much NOS XT stuff all in one place like that!

I can tell this is going to be a beautiful build. More pics?
