7speed cassette, DX thumbies, XTR m950 rear mech, XT m739 V's... hmm this build is getting more confused... ditch the thumbies and go for 8 speed XT m739 sti units. The stem looks better but still to long, especially if your girlfriend is gonna be riding it! :wink:

No its getting less confused. I have a control tech stem on its way and XT 735 front and rear going on with the XTR coming off. Also my girlfriend is nigh on 6 ft so reach isnt an issue. Thumbies will definately look better though.

Well its going to be ridden on the south downs so the steel f7 forks have ben put to one side for when i want to make it look all pretty again. I ride my bikes hard so you will never fine me or my girly rigid. I know it doesnt look as good but its all about the ride, looks are nice though.
