Fancied building up a simple steel HT that I can use and abuse in winter and other abysmal weather. Had the frame for a few years now, but never got round to building it up and other bikes got in the way. Likewise the wheels, brakes and forks. Most of the other bits were either snaffled from the parts box or removed from my old ali HT. Only had to buy (this time round) seatpost, bars, chainring (Hope 30T Retainer ring), saddle & grips.


Sanderson Breath 16" frame
Reba SL Dual Air
Cane Creek S3 headset

Mavic XM719 on Deore XT M756
Maxxis Advantage 2.25" (sticky one on front)

Raceface Turbine isis crank
Hope 30T Retainer ring
Sram pc951 chain
Deore XT 11-34 cassette
Deore XTR M952 mech
Deore XT M770 shifter 9spd

Jensen Engineering 27.2 post
Specialized Henge Expert Ti saddle
Hope 30.0 QR seat clamp
On-One Ultralight stem 70mm
Renthal Fatbar Lite 740 bar (probably cut down to 720 or 710)
Renthal Kevlar lock-ons
New style V12 pedals / M520's

Avid BB7 MTN brakes with SD7 levers
Jagwire Ripcord compression less brake cables

Would like it to come in under 26lbs as I live in south Devon and its all up/down round here, and I need all the help I can get...

Will update with further pics as i go, though with young kids, work etc etc it won't be tonight!
