I saw your kit, and well thought about it... why not modify a modern but old beaten XT rear mech to look a bit retroish and shiny?

it's not done yet, probarly need to clearcoat it or something but, well it looks sharp already...

and yes it really needs Red anodized cogwheels...

Thanks for all the replys folks really appreciated :D :D I'm hearing yall on the silver post too.

Iboc they are anti-gravity forks, and are based on tange shock blades with a fair bit of intricate cnc work. Only had a wee bit of testing but thay aren't as bad as I feared, may even get an inch of travel from them :lol:. also it is indeed a syncros post an earlier model than the micro adjust ones and coincidentally it came from the Netherlands.

Pickle this was gonna be a user but I think I 'll keep it clean a while longer :oops:

I know how you feel :oops:

My RTS is all polished and looking mint, especially now it has Mag21's on........I cant bring myself to use it at the moment.

I spent hours last weekend with Autosol and Brasso on the Zaskar, its blinding now........so dont want to use it either :oops:

So, thank god for my Tempest and Pro-Flex :lol:

Nicely done.

Hi Kaiser
As a lover of all things Specialized I must applaud your build. Bloody fantastic. Looking just right in everyway.
Take a bow, open a beer and in the morning go out and ride..........ride like the wind.

Very classy build. This is the first time I've seen this bike.
