Really Nice!!!

flip the stem and align the gripshifts (push them forward just a bit) with the brake levers and u'll have a worldcup racer!!!

I've seen this disrepect agaisnt the sport behaviour severaltimes on retro.

Is it that big bulb that gets in the way? Acctually the XT version at the same time was a bit better at this, and works really good even with topmounts. I was thinking of getting a complete xtr system but will probarly go for xt levers insteed, and xtr brakes cause they still are one of the best!

But on the stem bit, I've just taken my XTC for a spin, with a -10 degree Thomson x4 stem, and well let's just say with a 425mm ac fork this wasn't any good, no control whatsoever...

Really Good work anyways, looks like a stormer. Wish my bike would look as sorted as yours...

Seriously though I am liking it, especially those cranks.
Nice to see one of your bikes finally make it outside as well. :wink:
