Rebirth of the XTC

Bought a lefty and decided the best of the available frames to stick it on was the XTC and this is the result.

Bought an XT 2x10 groupset off Merlin but had everything else lying around to build it. Quite happy with the build for little outlay, 21lbs 8 oz as in the picture

    I can never decide whether to love or hate a lefty!

    Bike does look good though, nice cohesive spec, are those M765 brakes, those things seem to last forever, although I've used an M965 rear calliper on mine.
    Currently riding a Whyte T130C, X0 drivetrain, Magura Trail brakes converted to mixed wheel size (homebuilt wheels) with 140mm Fox 34 Rhythm and RP23 suspension. 12.2Kg.

    They are the LX M585 brakes actually. Bought them second hand on here years ago and have sat in the shed until now.

    Stans Olympic rims, 240s rear hub, cannondale SI hub on the front
    Thomson Masterpiece seatpost
    Easton EA70 stem (again bought second hand on here ages ago but sat unused)
    Ritchey WCS low riser
