As the RS8 chainset works better with a 9 speed chain I've swapped to a 9 speed set-up. It's now 2x9 instead of 2x8!

It meant swapping the X-rays for a set of LX 9spd I had, shame as I quite liked them and their lightweight!

The XTR 8spd cassette has been swapped for another but of the 9spd variety.

I've also added a crud-catcher and Bonty Mud X tyres for the winter :D

Whilst doing all of the above, I took the time to but some 3M clear protective tape in 'rub' areas. Its such anice example of the KK I've got to try and keep it that way :wink: I also used 'heat-shrink' to cover the cable ends of the gear and brake cable instead of the alloy end caps.

A few (more) pics...

Shifters and Syncros grips...

9 speed cassette...

Image

Cable runs between frame and CrudCatcher no problem, 3M tape under and round down tube to prevent rub!...

Image

Bonty Mud X, good tyres!...

3M Tape...

Heat shrink on cables...

Sweet :wink:

Cheers
