My move into a new space gave me a photo opportunity for some collection images. Here is my 1.7 full XTR M900 groups, about three years of patient gathering.

I've also added an image of vintage King (made) headsets I've acquired. My favorites: the 80's(?) era with the taller cups.

Breaks my heart to see all that XTR stuff in boxes not being used. You are going to use it one day aren't you? Please! :)

I have a lot of used examples of each part so I tend to rotate on those. If I didn't have those, the new parts would be quite tempting to use given the right build. I'll never use those boxed King headsets since I have never since another boxed example and nice used ones come up regularly.

I'll try to post more random group pics.
