so last night i decided to bolt the pace chainrings to my raceface crank.................whats the dealio with the bloody granny ring/spacer set up!!!!! had to buy some 8mm spacers and some more 16mm bolts to (fingers crossed) get it mocked up for bb sizing and maybe a refurb. good job im in no rush, although it did give me the push to order a chain and cassette. nowt flashy but it will get used and abused so cant warrent xtr throughout lol

im now at the point of selling some other frames and bits to look into xtr mechs over the xt ones......bloody hobby
