Since Ringlé hubs are time bombs just waiting to break up, I will most probably use XTR hubs as well.


:lol: thats why I'm ashamed to say mine only gets a ridden very occasional


Opportunity for someone to make repro hubs or hub bodies out of the right alloy. Sure there would be a lot of people after a Ringle hubs that don't crack.

Allright, I'm starting to be set for building up the bike.
Still have to order new decals from Gil and then building can begin.

I have bought a following setup for the bike:
- Ringlé Moby post
- Ringlé H2O bottle cage
- Ringlé Twisters Ti
- Ringlé Zooka Ahead
- Rock Shox Judy SL
- Easton/Yeti handlebar
- Odi Yeti grips
- Chris King Nothreadset + Spacers
- Selle San Marco Concor Light seat
- Ultimate Machine seat collar
- Kooka cranks + Kooka chainrings
- Deore XT bottom bracket
- XTR M950 rd
- XTR M953 fd
- Gripshift Srt800 X-Ray shifters
- Magura HS33 Raceline D brakes
- Hope TiGlide hubbed wheels
- IRC Yeti FRO tires (alternative green Michelin Comp S)

Still unsure whether I should use IRC/Yeti or Michelin tires on it.
Also contemplating of should I have barends or not.

sounds like a nice build. I'd pass on bar ends. And fit IRC tires

I would get rid of the hope hubs, replace with some HUGI.

What's wrong with the Hopes? As I've got a turquoise build here, the blue Hopes are a near match for the colour.
For Hugis (amazing hubs, had some Coda branded many years ago and now sporting 240S hubs on my actual rider) I would need to have yellow ones as silvers don't fit the outlook.
