Looks great now.

Would love to try it out, have the tubes got a lot of flex?

Agreed on the XTR, it'd be all wrong.

Great build, lovely. :cool:

Yeah, XTR is too ..... modern, to be honest I have some M730 4 finger levers that I feel would be more in keeping, they would pair up with the beartrap pedals well, maybe needs a long cage rear mech too?

only other quarm is the rims, theyre currently araya RX7 but I'm feeling the need for Mavics, annodised would suit better and I have some oxygen M7CD built up with campy hubs at the momeny that I could get built onto XT?

thoughts?
