Matty, you were worried about the price of Chris King spacers and then bought yourself a seemingly NOS M900 Seatpost? As an option!!?

Those have been trading for silly money on eBay for a while now.

I hope you found yourself a bargain! ; )

Ha, the spacers don’t even have any branding on. Could be any old rubbish.

Don’t get me started on the relative price of parts. I’m struggling to shift my lovely IFT 1997 frame for £100 yet you can but a Seatpost for similar or more. Makes no sense.

I bought the XTR post first off German eBay and it came up by pure chance. Then about an hour later the syncros post came up so ended up with two.

I’ll sell one on once I make a decision.

Titanium handlebar. Origin unknown. Looks nice and clean.

Don’t think it’s Titec Bontrager. Colour isn’t right but could stand corrected. It’s longer at 58cm

King Titanium Bottle Cage. Couldn’t resist. It was calling to me.

Front mech sorted I think.

Just the control tech stem and the 951 shifters.

Make sure you've got the right rear mech to shifters. They introduced rapid rise with M951.
