Thanks pal, much appreciated! I've always loved the black XT, and it just so happened that the NOS all black chainset and black hubbed wheels were available at the same time! They're not exactly common these days!

Any teasers on what you're building?

Yeah no secret really, gloss black 90 Attitude in medium, rigid box forks, NOS black XT arms with VG black rings, black XT hubs with dark NOS Araya RM20 rims and black spokes, Flite with black vanadium rails, etc., think your getting the pic!

Thanks mate, it seems you and I have very similar taste in bicycles..... We are both in the process of building both a YETI F.R.O. and a '91 GT Team Avalanche! 8)
