Project XC Racer: Update I

Well, the funding for my XC racing machine fell through so I had to come up with a new solution to build the bike: Borrow parts from my K2 Lithium 4.0 bike.

So my specs are as follow:

Fork: Manitou Black Platinum
Wheelset: Vuelta USA StarLite
Brakes: Hayes HFX-Nine Hydraulic
Stem: Ritchey Logic
Crankset: RaceFace Ride XC
Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT
Front Derailleur: TBD
Shifters: Shimano Deore (to be swapped)
handlebar: Aluminum (to be swapped)
Seatpost: TBD
Saddle: TBD

I’m satisfied with some of the components, I’m hoping to have this bike finished by next weekend.
