Those brake levers are very good but very heavy: a pair of dia compe SS7 would save you 100 grams. Love the xc pro cranks and those Pace rings are so cool: why go 1x? Front shifting w/ thumbies is near perfect. Keep the patina, it looks great w/ the vintage decals. Those USE posts are as iconic as Syncros.

Enjoying your approach. Great to still have your first 'proper' bike. Regarding bolts, here in Aus I've found a motorcycle parts site that has all kinds of bolts, many in stainless and titanium and often in different colours. Perhaps there's an equivalent UK site?
Good call! I will check that out.
