almost completed the upgrade itch for my ride which i purchased from pauls cycles for £309, i have upgraded nearly every part from standard set up, which to be honest needed it, i think i shouldve saved the money instead and bought an anthem for the same money
2009 Giant yukon fx3 frame size small
2010 rockshox tora sl, 100mm coil
standard giant rear shock
shimano slx chainset/bb
shimano slx f/mech
shimano xt shadow r/mech
shimano slx brakes 160mm
raceface evolve- lo-riser bar, stem & seatpost
charge spoon saddle
OEM cane creek zero stack headset
mavic 717 rims, shimano deore hubs
schwalbe nobby nics evo tyres 2.1
lizard skins moab grips
dmr v8 pedals

just looking to upgrade the rear shock now, but havent got a clue where to start really as i have found out they all have different fittings, and also thinking of getting a dropper seatpos, ,currently the bike has lost nearly 7lbs since its birth in may this year but its cost me nearly a grand, the missus isnt happy but hey ho, you cant take the money with you when your gone

    they were the only colour i could get without ordering over the web, but at the rate the paints chipping off they will be white very shortly
