    Not much I know but it's clean and tidy.
    Got to adjust the saddle again as I took it off to clean it and it's not level now. I am not a fan of my Bontrager seatpost.:idea:

    I have a pair of off roadwheels (Deore hubs on WTB dual duty XC rims with stainless eyelets and spokes).
    The wheels on the bike in the picture are non disc deore hubs on Mavic XM117 rims and stainless spokes. I bought these from Merlin handbuilt on offer for £50 :sad:, Schwalbe City Jet tyres.

    I have a Kore Elite handlebar and Tioga stubby bar ends as the OE Bontrager drop bars were 90 miles wide. :biggrin:

    Have also fitted a BBB parts headset along with a Rockshox SID race fork.

    No future plans apart from a new BB.

    Thanks :biggrin:
    I bought it off a chap on ebay.
    I cleaned it up real nice as it needed it badly.

    Changed my mind about future mods......I want a new seatpost and saddle. My seatpost is a little fiddly to adjust but it works fine but my saddle is too uncomfortable for me. :idea:

    I think I'm going to sell the MTB.
    It needs a new Square tapered bottom bracket.
    Other than that it's spot on.
    Advert to follow shortly...but PM me in the mean time if your interested.
    ;)
    I want to concentrate on the Felt.

    I got one of those,Ooops sorry got it wrong mines a 3700 for jolly's along the towpath with the rest of the family, your paint job is nice, my 2007 model is all grey, very boring, but on the plus side possibly less attractive to thieves.
