Cheers mate :) It's been an enjoyable build so far hunting down all the parts to bring the frame back to life again.

I'm tempted with that headset but i'm waiting for the lad i got the hubs off,he says he's got one,think its the black one with white writing :D

Edit: the lad had the headset :)

Loving this build, this was the best Explosif in my opinion. Awesome bikes.

Cheers mate,I'm dying to ride it back to back with my 89 Explosif to see if there's a difference. The headsets sorted so just have to wait for them to turn up and then its down to replacing all the nuts and bolts (might go Ti with them) and cables. Nearly there :)

The XT hubs and headset and rims turned up but i'm keeping the rims in the box so they don't get damaged. Just waiting for the Shimano outer cables and the new bolts to turn up now.
