PACE RC35 in great order
XTR M900 headset

Merlin Titanium axel bottom bracket and Ti crank bolts.
Ringle Black holy skewer set
Ringle copy bottle cage and Ti bottle bolts
CookBros cranks and caps
Middleburn rings
Titanium chainring bolts
Middleburn chainrings
Shimano HG91 chain
XTR M900 front and rear mechs
XT thumb shifters
XT pedals
ODI Attack grips
XTR M900 cantis with SRP Ti brake pad holder hardware and Ti mounting bolts.
Onza Chill Pill cable hanger at he rear and PACE rocker at the front.
Front wheel is a MAVIC Ceramic on a carbon PACE hub, rear is a MAVIC non ceramic on an XT with drilled Shimano 7 speed cassette.

Cheers guys, she certainly is a lovely bike covered in no nonsense retro loveliness. Proud to have built, ridden and owned her, the second retro I built and I swore I would never sell but it’s her or the 91 Hei Hei with frame number 00001!
