Thanks a lot for the kind words, it's nice to get replies even though this project is moving at a snails pace and there's not much to look at so far.
The project is quite involved only because of the use this bike has seen in its life, so pretty much everything needs to be redone. I am also only taking this on, as it was my first proper DH bike. You should see the state of the previous all rigid DH bike I ran
That's never coming back.
Btw on your QR question from the 1st page: No, it is the wrong one. Looks like a slightly older DX to me (if it has the rubber o-ring on the screw part). Could be it was original team spec though. They are sturdy QRs.
Thanks for addressing my QR question, but I am not sure of your answer. Do you have a picture of an old DX item so I can see what it's like? Perhaps it could be the old XTR as that had an o-ring on one side too?
