xtr modification done.


It took a wee while and a fair bit of effort. Hack saw the tabs, coarse file, finer, finest. Then tidying up and use of a round file to take away any edges. Decided raw is the way : hey! they are ready and willing...

Fitted a black spire mono veloce and slotted em onto the pink beast of burden. Its coming together...the zoncolan arrived and the rims and front hub are on order. Once they are in i'll build the wheels, and slot on the racks...

you need a dremel - it's the easiest way to inhale finely ground aluminium alloy...

crank was from merlin cycles (on line shop)....ring was from chain reaction cycles...files are just standard metal work files....
