Keep it simple stupid:


A recent aquirement from Russell was some rather nice Reynolds straight blade forks ala P2 style but, in my own opinion, slightly more handsome.

They were meant for the Karakoram but worked better with the Zaskar - I re-used the cromo stem from Russell too.

I found a complete XT headset to finish the XT build.
