Surely two rings (middle and inner) in old XT cranks, cantilevers XTR (with Onza Chill Pill in green), seatpost Thomson in green, QR Salsa in green, brake levers and shift XTR, derailleurs XT, wheels Chris King, headset XTR, bottle cage "Ringle replic" in green...

Yeah, cool, and if I don't provide you with enough inspiration, you could always flog it to me, and I'll do a resto-job on it.

I'm completely hooked on this thing now, and I'm gonna start the hoarding thing, mwahahahahaha. :shock:

Hi Marc,

Pics attahced as requested - can't see the word 'Everest' on it anywhere. As for the white outer cables, I'll have to see, cos I don't want to overdo it!! lol.

All white! Sounds like an interesting project! My old mate spitoon did a GT (sadly not as 'cool' as alpinestars) in all white. Here's a pic for you to give some inspiration, sadly he never got it finished before banning himself from the site:

So what groupset etc are you planning? If that front mech ever becomes surplus please let me know. I quite fancy doing an alpinestars in that black Deore LX.

Nothing sinnister, he did'nt get banned as such i think he just canceled his membership, maybe his spending money on bits and bikes was getting out of control.

God knows how something like that could happen ? :lol:
