Not ridden for a while but may come to France with me this year, still undecided.

Pretty sure they are standard bosses. The guides though are mere holes for clip in hose guides for the maguras, they will probably accept a full length outer though.

Nice, just checked it out only the 3rd one I have ever seen. It bigger than mine but then you are taller than me. Looks in a similar condition to mine too, the stove enamel paint it really tough. Be good to see another built up and ridden. I assume you plan the obligatory full m730/732 build for it?

I wondered about putting more m900 on mine, the rear mech was upgraded in the shop when I bought it and I added the front mech a couple of years ago, but I'd probably only want to upgrade the chain set now as I like the wheels and I wouldn't want stis or any other brakes.

Did you win this Chris? There was some competition for it in the end, more than I anticipated.

Carl.
