got the frame today, has a bit of wear but that will be fixed after the winter. we were 3guys struggling to get the old BB off the frame! We were a bit concerned that this old Carbon fiber hunny would crack but it didn't even flex a mm!

will be heading for a neo modern build me to, and haven't decided on some stuff. This bike will probarly be raced a couple of times 09, and need to have a race set up, for training. It's lighter then I thought and I think it will be a great ride, that will probarly turn a couple of heads...

rear mech will be XTR or Dura Ace I think, and seatpost will probarly be a shimmed silver Thomson unit.

Haven't really decided on forks, should I keep the tuned Judy Sl or maybe an blue 98 Sid, Sid 05 WC or go rigid?

And I need some help with the braking, XTR-V's, Avids, Cane Creek or even a set of new Maguras? probarly want to change the levers to, sugestions please...


other spec is:

BB: XTR
Chainset: XTR -952
Stem: Ritchey
Handlebar: Answer
grips: Foam
Wheels: mavic 517/ xt, tioga
seat: Flite Ti stripped
QR: Salsa
Rearmech: LX 8speed (xtr 950 or dura ace soon)
front mech: XT (05)
shifters: NOS Deore XT thumbs
Brake Levers: Avid SD-7
Brakes: ??
Fork: Judy SL with ti screws 95 or ???
Frame: Cadex CFM3
