also sorted out my set of RaceFace Turbine IB cranks. had to source out a longer spindle BB, and also all the missing crank bolts. while i was at it, got some matching bolts.

all that's left is to set up the cables and wait for the set of IRC Mythos XC rustwalls to arrive! :D

Seriously nice bike. love the attention to detail, and love that it gets plenty of use. It's nice to see the a Rocky Mountain in it's natural habitat!

Looking very nice but how narrow are those bars? :shock: :shock:

Clear Yeti Speed Grips should be quite easy to get hold of if you still want some?

Thanks guys!

The bar is a Scott AT3-LF, and I believe it's the smallest width, being 21" wide, outer to outer.

I'll post up pics of my ordeal getting the x-rays on to and around the bends of the handlebar when i get a chance. I documented the steps. Wasn't the easiest thing to do!

Neilll, sending u a PM. :wink:

if i could find a set of ATI Tomac blue clear grips, that be ideal. but i'd settle for some clear yeti's.

here's a pic of my old vintage RM jersey. it's lost it's elasticity at the waistband and sleeve cuffs though, do to it's age. other than that it's still in pretty good condition as i haven't worn it much.
