Agreed, the levers are the most dated part of this groupset but personally I'd have applied the 'all or nothing' rule.

Hi mate
Another lovely build. Looks really good without being repainted. Thats the way I like em anyway. Look forward to seeing it at Jedburgh.
Once again, sit back, have a beer and pat yourself on the back. 8)
I also like the tyres. :wink:

great job Kaiser the bike looks ace, love the colour, the old school americana feel and the xt- don't like u-brakes but your rear end looks very tidy without the canti's it has to be said.

Sell me the rolls when you get bored with it, and I am most prob wrong but the front tyre looks like it would be better with the tread reversed no?

Looking forward to seeing it at Jedi. 8)

After much sizing and such I've came to the conclusion long stems aren't working for me :? the 150 on this will be replaced by something about 120~130 ish.
