I allready have rc30 forks for the elite. My heart says xc pro cantis/chainset /f+r mech build, but this will take time and money, so i may opt for xt.
I've promised my youngest daughter the P7, so i will be on the lookout for ritchey parts for this one.


There's a bucket load of nice looking xc comp on 'bay at the mo 8)

Quick update on how my Elite is presently fairing.

I managed to get mostly xc pro on it as intended, except for the cranks and chainring which i am still on the lookout for.
and of course the titanium saddle. which i now have 2 of. the second one will be for my vit t2 build when i get time and funds.

Just hit a snag when fitting the front mech, The band's to small, I was positive it was a 34.9 but when I came to fit it, it definitely isn't.
Just put a wanted ad on the site for either a full mech or just the band.
