Just got in from work today and found some more parts had been delivered :) thought i'd quickly put the bike together to have a look. As you can see i still haven't had a chance to get the forks done but the velocity stem needs a respray so they'll be done together. The XT seatpost is in decent condition so i'm happy with that,the shifters polished up nice and the Ritchey foam grips suit it nicely. The other changes will be the black XT hubs and i've found a nos set of anodised rims i'm going to use. Only thing holding the build up is i still need a 1" XT headset :facepalm:

Just had these delivered today cheers Antstark :)

All i'm needing now is a 32 hole black M732 Deore XT rear hub to match the front XT hub and i can start thinking about getting the wheels built up.
