A few more parts have arrived, so the only things I'm missing now are bars and stem, shifters, tyres, and cables! I still need to get my fork back from the LBS, so can't really start building until i do
here are a few more pics:
XT M750 175mm 5 bolt crank, 26t middleburn inner ring, 38t goldtec outer (I'm going 2x9). I?m a bit worried about the clearance between the inner ring and the bolts holding the outer on, so might need some washers in there. I'm also thinking of polishing the arms (not the spider), just to make them nice and shiny. They don't really need it, but I think they might fit better with the overall build that way, and I saw some on here a while back that had been polished and looked stunning!
XT M739 long cage rear mech... from the original build and still going strong. I just hope it works OK with 9 speed!
New sram 9 speed chain and 11-34 cassette (the rear mech is rated to 32t max, but i?m hoping it will be OK, especially as I'm only running 2 rings!)
