That looks great Joe! Love that colour and the whole thing is superb with that build.

At the moment in a bit of a fluid state, right now it's got the Shimano drive but with Suntour pedals, seat post, FD and roller cam, I do have most of the xc9000 group but not wheels,

Excellentic! Took a bit of doing - well done.

Got to love a chainstay rollercam 8)

Also digging the double downtube bottle bosses: my Kuwahara has them, but you don't see them too often.

Glacial rate of progress here. I liked the Mizuno forks but they lowered the front end a bit, tried on the original forks, feels like a much better fit, thinking of repainting them white, maybe stem in white too. Been a great project to throw money at this one - all worth it of course!

Good news with the roller cam is that it all fits well, I was kind of worried.. nice spring adjustors on the xc 9000 version too that make it easy to get right.
