      1998 s-works M2. Now built. (Just imagine it full of worn out XTR and a blown out SID Race)

      Here's mine. Still trying to find a M950 front derailleur. A little bit of XT does fine for the time being though.

      Did you break your rear triangle and get a crash replacement? Is that a Revelation fork?

      I went OTB and the bike landed on its side onto some rocks, which resulted to a nasty dent on one of the tubes of the rear triangle. SC didn't have crash replacement triangles anymore for this older model, so I got some high temp putty, filled it, sanded it nice and clean and got the whole thing powdercoated black.

      I'd have preferred to see the blue XCs on the Eriksen and you should have purchased yellow XCs (and yellow Speed Grips and an old Judy SL or Mag 21r) for the GT. I'm disappointed.
      OriginalGTI - nice Spins! I have a friend with a 1997? Barracuda something or other with the same Spins and Smoke/Dart Magics.

      Well Samson, you have my address so feel free to ship those items over. Speaking of tires and disappointment, have you had any luck finding appropriate tires for your Boxster? No? These might work:

      The blue FireXCs went on the GT because I decided to switch from the FireXC 2.1s on the Eriksen to a faster rolling tire. Currently the Eriksen has a set of Michelin XC AT 2.0s. I suppose a 2.1 Fire XC on the front and a 1.8 FireXC on the back could work. Anyone here using a 1.8 FireXC?

      Lavender would compliment the pinkish hue of the Meridian Metallic paint, that's for sure.
      I have run the 1.8 XCs in the past, and they are faster than the 2.1s. My issue with them was frequent flatting and they felt a bit loose in most situations. What is the terrain like in Adelaide, anyway?

      well, got my new bike yesterday and took it out for a ride. My fiance paid for most of it for my christmas present. It's a Redline D440 29er, it's great fun, and in the wet sometimes snowy conditions today it got traction in places none of my past 26ers would have.

      most likely i will be replacing the hardrock with either a voodoo bizango or a soma groove.

      Thanks,
      have a xtr ti cassette and set of black chris king classics and mavic 517 citrons waiting to be built pending funds.
      can't wait for those...
      those pics were just after picking it up from a complete rebuild as the fork needed service, re cabled, all adjusted, degreased, you know the drill.
      it was down for a month and a half and am quite happy to have it back.

      Mine is still being built, should be done VERY soon.
