Okay, finally got around to sorting my photos out.

Here is the latest and probably final incarnation of my Ultimate restoration with full XTR (except rear mech), Tioga Disc Drive Pro and NOS Smoke Lite/Porc combo.

All that remains is to ride it. That can wait until MM09 8)

cheers JV.

I have a nice M900 but just haven't gotten around to swopping them over. And I can't find the spare links for that chain.

Best money shot I've seen in a while. :wink:

You know I love the Ultimate. You could hang Sram on it and it would look good.

What did you do with the G brakes????? :oops:

Lovely clean build Kev,

Never been a fan of the Ultimate, but yours had made me think twice...
