Decided to convert an FSR to a McRoy replica circa 'Dirt' -

I pretty much have all the basics but does anyone know what cranks, pedals, brakes and hubs I should be looking for?

Damn that brings back memories, along with my 'too fast to race' vhs 'Dirt' is the only one I've kept hold of. Haven't even got anything to play it on now!

Should remember the spec of the JMCs bikes, they were in Nwmtb centre all the time when I worked there. Definatley Avids (red/silver although some of his bikes had black/silver ones), gripshift with green rubber and yellow grips (on the M2 not sure on fsr) rings a bell too! He ran SPDs on the FSR. Hugi hubs. Hmmm.
Really should be able to remember.

He'll know regardless, that's where I was when he ran/built JMCs bikes!
