cool retro (RF turbines), or classy retro (XTR M900)? Which one should I pick?

the RFs are MINT btw, both rings and arms. i was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. :shock:

The XTR arms could do with a little polish, and the rings are a tad worn.

cat's out of the bag! :oops: :D

Early first "test" fit. Note the P2s are 1-1/8" and no headset installed. Just wanted a sense of what a black Syncros Powerlite would look on it.

8) Things are picking up

Minty, close to perfect XTR rear mech found it's way to me. Could almost pass as NOS with a bit of shop wear. Only way you'd know it's not is light signs of mud. Got it Dirt cheap too! ;)

Oh wait, WTF??? where's the pulleys??? :evil:
