Deore XT 1.1/4" headset
Tange forks
Onza ule grips
Deore XT thumbies [the only things not NOS - but pretty mint]
Deore XT levers
Deore LX 1990 cantis
Deore XT cranks and biopace rings
Deore LX 1990 pedals and Haro toeclips
Campagnolo seatpost
Vetta Gel Turbo saddle
Deore DX front mech
Deore LX 1990rear mech
Deore LX 1990 hubs, on Ritchey Vantage comp rims
Ritchey Megabite amberwall tyres
White cable outers!
Hope you like - I love it! I just wish it had been more sunny as the candy bubblegum pink colour is amazing!
