To build up I have:

- Saracen Wolber rims on black XT hubs with Farmer Johns
- Deore II (DX) chain set (think MT62...) in black...cranks are a bit scuffed
- LX pedals (black).....letting the build down a bit but will look for some better ones
- original Saracen black stem & bars (sold with the frame)
- NOS DX headset in black
- XT M735 front & rear (short cage) mechs
- DX STI brake & gear levers (NOS, black)
- DX cantis in black
- not sure on the grips....whatever Matt has kicking around his man cave

I know it deserves better components in a few areas but I just want to get out there and ride it......ASAP :-D

Do a search for mine. Heathy has a real time machine job if you want a reference.

Strange, mine arrived with non Saracen forks as well. I think the ones with it are Specialized ones.
