Having found I was riding the Orange a lot I decided to retire the M900 kit onto the Pace, also the RC36's have gone there so I rebuilt the Orange with some new wheels and a some 'sort of' retro bits to make a daily retro rider...

Modern bits:
'98 XT vee brakes, XT parallax rear hub, '98 XT front mech, Mavic X717 rims, Ringle post.

Retro bits:
'92 Deore XT rear mech, Deore DX chainset, Tioga Hound dawg kevlar tyres, Deore DX thumbies, Flite, Syncros Cattleprod, Xlite Barends (thanks Jez!), Hope Ti front hub.

I will be (wrapping up warm) and riding it on sunday, see you there :D

Lovely!
There ain't much better than that in my eyes.
I think mine will end up looking pretty similar.
I'm thinking of M952 for mine though.

:D

Looks lovely mate, I'm not even sure the Yo's gonna look that good, and that's your "lesser spec" bike!
