Planet x dirty harry dream build!
So after months of petrol wasting, ebay haggling, credit card hammering, evenings figuring out what would be the best stem length, researching how to research things, weight weenieing, copper slipping and allen key spinning my dream build is finally done! Weighing in at 19.5lbs she isnt a whole lotta rosie really.
The pile of bits

Its bloody quick! I work for http://www.ukbikesdepot.com so i didnt have ti break into madison 😆 the build cost got a little out of hand, i started off with a 1500 budget from selling an oaf of a myst pro but i ended up doubling that plus a bit 😯 the multicoloured stem is to go with the red shiny bits, skewers, bottom bracket, brake bore caps, headset,rim decals and my old seat clamp which was a mt zoom one that weighed 5g but couldn’t hold my seat post up so the black temporary until i get a hope clamp. As tomhoward said, clutch mech + short chain means i haven’t dropped my chain once, even on the mega bumpy bit in hully gully in gisburn!mattjgSubscriber
Pics of the callipers with the switched bore caps please. (I want to do this too but it’s a bit of a PITA with X2s going inwards instead of out!) I have a choice of blue (to match frame detail) and black (for stealth) to go on my Salsa Selma, and am undecided.
I’d get rid of the Crest stickers and leave the frame un-decaled.Posted 4 years ago
no theres no coloured lever parts unfortunately, steerers just been chopped, tried a black headset cap on it and it looked a bit odd, going to get a paul chain keeper and the xtr cranks will polish themselves up so they will always look fresher than black ones or carbon ones!Posted 4 years ago
