Wow! :shock:

Superb job (as usual).

Couple of Q's:
How does the XTR mech shift with the KCNC(?) jockeys?
What does it weigh?
Will you be getting it dirty?

Personally the green tyres are a little too much for me - better with black...

That is looking so goddam bling. Love it all bar the brake levers. Had a (grey) set myself as they came on the Bontrager. Didn't get on with them at all, are sat at the bottom of my parts box.

Usually I would say I'm not sure about the tyres, but now I'm not sure I'm not sure! :lol:

KCNC Jockeys work fine,theyre bit noisy until they bed in,weighs about 22lbs,possible little bit more,and yes its got dirty this evening,have to say the forks were a mare,in need of a good service,they kept bottoming out on me,few of my group had to listen to me cussing quite a bit at them :roll: :oops:

Climbs amazing,bounced off loads of nasty singletrack roots and rocks with ease,havnt ridden a steel hardtail in anger for a while,dont know what i was missing

look.....dirt....well some,tracks were very dry
