  • gorgeous bike.Where did you get your chainset from?
    I assume this is French petrol - be careful in reverse - the car will retreat rapidly at the least provocation.

    lookng lovely, a nice balance between weight and toughness.
  • Lovely lovely!

    My LBS has had a set of Rotor cranks in their shop trying to be sold for a while now, lovely bits of kit they are! Wish I had the cash for them cause they cost about 500 euros here.

    Lovely bike, like the cranks don't see many like that nowadays, years ago I use to have Middleburn cranks but for the last 5 or years I've just stuck to boring (but good) XT's

    Cheers guys!

    Been busy so not had chance to check my topic, got the cranks from work through Velotech services, really nice bit of kit but you are talking about £420.00 for the cranks and rings :S! however, weight was low and I like the Qrings, so I thought what the heck! :)

    MtbGus, yeah I was always the same... until I saw how nice these looked heh :)

    Also going Crest rims soon to shed a fews grams, a friend is 16ST and still about to keep the crest's in true! so i'm sure I can :D

    I've decided its time to shed a few grams! so this week I am building some new wheels!

    Stans Crest rims in black,
    DT Swiss Revolution spokes,
    Alloy red nipples,
    XTR 985 hubs
    X-King tyres 2.0

    Estimating around a 300gram lose :)

    It is indeed :). I just got the headset direct from scott, basically they provide the frame set with a Richey headset that has a 1 1/8 adapter or 1.5" adapter. Still use a 1.5" Bearing.

    I did try everywhere before getting it from scott as it was around crimbo time and they were closed! :O after a few different headsets I bit the bullet and waited for scott to open. We are Scott dealers, so you would need to go through your local scott dealer :).
