OK folks, this is the last update in a while.
My last purchase for the race lite in the foreseeable future :wink:
Thanx wadsy, can´t wait putting these on.

Which in my case will take a while as the winter in sweden just turned arctic.
Can´t/won´t fix the bike in the house, and outside it´s about -20 C.
And unfortunalety it´s gonna stay that way a couple of weeks :evil:
So take care everybody and hope you like the pics so far :)

I call that a lack of dedication to the cause! :wink:

Love the frame, it's going to be a nice build. On my monitor that Ringle post looks pink, please tell me that it's red?? 8)

I just can´t wait getting this sorted as I went from 8-speed XT to 9-speed XTR in three weeks.

Hi there everybody!
Middle of april has come and gone and it´s still not flying :oops:

But now everything is coming together as the only thing missing is a cassette that´s on it´s way from the states.

The following pictures show the bike as it will end up.
Possibly I´ll change the crowbar for the monkeylite in the future but that´s about it, for now...

As I had a full XT drivetrain and then suddenly and quite inspirationally started buying XTR 9-speed, I know there´s always something ´round the corner :wink:

But here´s the pix taken this evening.
Hope you like how the bike´s coming about.

Jan
