Looking dead smart mate.

What are the ultrasonic cleaners like? Are they worth the money?

Love the way you polish your frames. Great stuff 8)

Also, where did you get the foam grips from? Might use a pair of those on the Manitou FS.

With different wheels/tyres for riding!...slightly bigger volume ;)

Spec:

Same as above, but with...

Wheels: Mavic 217 on M900 xtr with DB stainless spokes
Cassette: XTR M950
QRs: Svelte titanium
Tyres: 2.125 IRC Claw Comp Lite

Weight: approx. 22.2lb



I plan to build a lighter wheelset for it: xtr M900 hubs with Mavic 230 rims and DT Rev spokes.

I'll also be on the lookout for a ti quill-stem bolt and maybe some other tuning bits 'n' bobs! :facepalm:

At the moment though; quite pleased with how it's turned out :)

Cheers
