Well we are now very close to been done. The XTR M900 front mech arrived yesterday and I am just waiting on the rims which I collect on Wednesday and unless I can get my hands on some M231 CD's the Ringles will be built with NOS silver M231's.

I will add the Toplines as and when I can lay my hands on this troublesome 127.5mm bottom bracket spindle.

Lovely bike and build.

Grello Chance with black components are tops in my book.

Only thing I would change is the front brake. Paul's Stoplight like the rear would be perfecto.

Had a very productive trip to America and returned with the 2 NOS M231's in 32 hole and one in 36 hole, a Tioga Disk Drive, 6 pairs of Panaracer Timbuk II tyres, some Paul moon units and a XTR M900 Cassette (thanks to Sylus for that one).

The M231's are destine for the Ringle hubs and the Yo, the Disk Drive will maybe be put on the Yo occasionally and I have some NOS M231 CD's on the way to build that onto.

Tioga Disk Drives are the mutts Knutz

often thought that they were designed so that Blind people could join in and appreciate a quality bike .... or maybe get out of the way before being run over :?
