Nothing spectacular ..just shimano xt 730 & 732

Classic parts are the best on such beautifull frame 8)

Do you have tried the classic Ritchey logic fork on it ? Vandermark designed the geometry with that fork

I look forward to your result :D ...and remember the seatpost is actually 27.2 and not 27mm.
I realized it after many trips (the 27.2 goes in with a lot of strength and effort)

Will do. Did you have to do anything special to get the seatpost in? Any tips?

Stunning. Totally "my kind of build". Great photo's and presentation too.

But it can be a touch better......try to find a Rolls Titanio from around 1992 / 1994 as it will mate perfectly with the rest of the bike.
