I think that the red rear mech doesn't fit the frame...what about a XTR 900 mech?

The rest is pretty stunning 8)

Very nice Adroit! Is this the one from the US eBay that was for sale several times (same seller has also Painter Desert Attitude with Mag 21) ?

BTW: Grafton perches should be in front of the bar...

am i being an idiot or are your brake blocks not the wrong way round? I seem to remember the XTR blocks facing the other way.

But that might just be me :?

Nice bike tho :D

Haha cheers lads...
You know I thought the perches were wrong but they seem to work fine for me as they are...
Also I really cant be bothered to change it.
The blocks are far as Im concerned have the arrows pointing in the direction the wheel turns. :?
Scant I love those Serfas grips too they are the BEST IMHO...
Do they still make them?
