A bike that needed some upgrades. Had this for a while but was 50/50 on parts around the bike. Some XT, some XTR and some low end stuff. All M900 now and a nasty sounding Ringle hub in the rear, front matching. I do have the original Halson for the bike but it needs a rebuild so the Mag is in it's place.

Now there's something you don't see every day! Very special indeed :)

There was a reasonably recent thread where someone refurbed some Halsons if you were looking for info, though the Mags look spot on.

Whats the ride like?

Lost the Mag fork, installed the Halson. Have the elastomers in the mail. Not sure about the Salsa stem though, skinny little thing compared to the rest of the bike. Halson boots were toast so found some Amazon things that matched up with diameters for tubes, crazy. Advice, stick with the stem or no?1120211546.jpg

Weird bike paired with some weird forks? What's not to love!

Salsa stem looks great to me!

But then, they always do.

All set with the weird bike now. Full M900 build, Ringle hubs and a nice no logo CK headset. Just need a cap for the stem, 1" caps are not things I have, eBay I suppose.
