Nice! - Make sure you add a build thread with pics before you sell it for the divorce settlement!

Just scored some XC Pro thumbies, so it's probably going to veer towards original spec eventually. Now running correct hubs and rims.... and a 134mm bottom bracket on the way to give the Cook Bros Racing cranks a try.
Deore DX is one of my favourite groupsets though.... works really well on this, the Killi Flyer, and the Pine Mountain.

Cheers Jim. I'll bring this with me the next time I'm Colchester way, and we'll try to get a ride organised as mentioned in another thread!
As promised, here's some more pics of progress. I've added some more detail pics....these are the best ones I've taken so far that are nearest to showing the 'real' colour. It's one of those colours that doesn't capture well with a camera phone. Even the pics in the magazine article make it look 'red' :?
