Looks great, but your XTR cantis look like they are on the wrong ends.

Looking good, and I thought the canti's were supposed to be that way around, with the lower profile ones on the rear to reduce snagging them on your heels etc...

That's the idea, but Dr S does have them reversed, with the longer front arms at the rear. You can tell by the shape of the cutouts - the longer oval holes should be at the front. The rest is just down to pad position and straddle length.

Very pretty bike.
