Hurry up and buy those black XT cantis and get them on there.
Also a black bar would really finish it off.

Lid, are you flaming phychic fella :?: :lol:

Yep the black XT are ordered..

The bars stay :wink:

The pics dont show it but the bars really give it some contrast and the fact is they are lovely period TI bars :wink:

Also, looking for a mint XT short cage rear mech for it..

Got some MAVIC MA40 rims coming and they will be built onto some black RINGLE hubs ive got stashed..

More pics of a better quality coming soon :D

Irish or Scotch? Could have been a Highland Park day rather than the usual Connemara.......

I fitted the Xt brakes and did some final ajustments earlier :D

Rode it briefly for the first time, i gotta say cantis are naff :shock:

Aside from that im very pleased with the result :D

Just need to build up my lighter, much cooler wheels and find a TANGE PRESTIGE decal for the bottom of the seat tube.

On another note think ill go for photography lessons and sell a couple of bikes to pay for a new camera :lol:
