Thanks fellas :D , frustratingly it's going to be some time before I can ride it as finding an XC9000 group set is proving to be quite hard. I’ve found the easy parts but the roller cams, shifters are proving to be elusive and the front mech is another story… :roll: I think this might turn into one of the longest Wanted threads yet (hopefully not). Anyone got any idea what BB axle length these used? 122.5mm?

Thought I'd put all the components together and take a picture as I want to get started on the wheels. Can't use the roller cams and they're missing some bit (springs, tension bolts etc) and the front mech doesn't fit... but we're getting there 8)

Why, thank you :lol: . Proper palava to getting them to the UK as the seller would only ship the within the US, so I had to ask a colleague in Connecticut to send them on. Should have some photos on them finished sometime next week/week after.

Wheels are finished and I'm really pleased :D . Nothing fancy; DT Swiss straight gauge spokes, 3 cross pattern and brass nipples.

Managed to find some NOS hubs, so I didn't use clockd's in the end and those were 130mm OLD, so they still needed to be modified to 135mm. I'm not totally happy with the 3x3mm washer/spacers but for now they'll do but if anyone has a nice clean 9mm washer please let me know.

What do you think? Suntour XC stem with head binder or Nitto MT6?
