Finally got this one together. Turned out to be a fun bike.

Hope you liberally anti-seized the seatpost....
oh yeah.. bike lust at it's most demented form. that's what i would call it in 95. that would be the end it all bikes.. i would stare at it endlessly.

Stunning!

Lovely, nice selection of retro retro with no anodized flashyness.

What forks is she flying with?

Oooh!
Now I know what bike you were talking about (and why the Syncros ti bars)! :D

I didn't know you were working to get that finished up. Looks great!

Overly flexy? Any dirt time yet?

...duh, it was about time that you get on a really good bike :D

like it alot! that's the Litespeed fork, isn't it?

how does the DA rear der like the XT thumbies? i never got it to work properly even with the cable clamped in front of the bolt.

I couldn't ever get them to shift either. However, DA rear deraileurs shift extremely well with XC Pros. Especially with an XTR mid length cage on it.

So you're saying a DA derailleur with an M900 cage? What would the advantages/disadvantages of that be? Just less weight. The thought sound cool...but I'm wondering if it's worth the trouble?

No, slightly more weight but also more chain wrap capability. Also it looks pretty damn cool. Unfortunately you are still limited to a 28tooth cog. If I had a dig camera with me I would snap a pic of one I have. I also have a coresponding XTR with a short cage on it on my Hakalugi. It is kinda neet when someone asks where you got it.

Interesting, and kinda cool.

If you ever have the time and think of it...I'd like to see pics of that set up. I assumed the point was to have the low(er) weight of the DA, and the 32 cog capabilities of the XTR.

You can run a 32 with a road derailleur. You just have to be selective in you gear choice.
