Hi All,

Nearly a restored GT XCR 1000 Mountain Bike.

Rubbed the alloy frame down with wet and dry and then had it "re-buffed" also had the rear arm sprayed black with silver speckle (was blue), then had new Decals.

Spec is as follows

GT XCR 1000 I-Drive Frame
FSA Carbon Fibre Handlebars
Shimano Deore 27 Speed Rapid Fire Shifters
Avid Juicy 3 Hydralic Braking System
Mavic Crossride Wheels
Specialized Bottle Holder LOL
Shimano Deore Crankse
Shimano Deore XTR Front Mech
Shimano Deore Rear Mech
Shimano Deore 9 Speed Rear Cassette
Ritchey Stream Saddle
Tiogo Saddle Seatpost

The reason i say it is nearly restored is because I still need to do all of the gear Cabling, and fit a new FSA SLR KForce KC Carbon Fiber Handle Bar Stem and also a FSA Carbon Fibre Seat Post (Should lessen the weight!!!!) ALthough it is extremely light already.

Anyways enough ramblings from me let me know your thoughts.

**UPDATE**

I took the bike out today after setting up the gears and it rode like a dream!!! The only issue i have with it now is the rear shock, Rockshox SID. Think it needs a service, Re-Gas etc also does anyone know where I can get a new decal set for it?

    Nice! Always loved specialized...

    On another slightly less important note, what's providing the bounce up front?

    Hi Si,

    Thanks for the reply to the post, These are a cheap pair of XCm V3 forks, they where about £100 quid, i believe they are made by SR Suntour, They are fairly light, but until i can afford some rock shox then these are staying on lol......
