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