Aw Dendy! It's a bit late to turn with an alternative opinion!
In all seriousness, though, I viewed the XT brakes and sliver chainset as one package, and the black LX brakes and black LX chainset as another
It was only when a couple of guys threw in the alternative of XT brakes and LX chainset that it got considered
I'll probably spray the cages of the pedals at some point and I might just sneak a silver chainset on just out of interest....
But right now, it totally works for me, everything on it is black and silver I think the balance is spot on, aesthetically
On the subject of handling, I'm gonna sort out another set of wheels and tyres and go down some steep stuff! These wheels and tyres look totally mint so I'll keep them for 'special' - Yes, I did scrub the tyres!
