Is that all? I guess. A few tweaks on the drive train and a change on the saddle to a Brooks B17 is in order, but on the whole it is pretty sweet.
Saturday I spent 4 fruitless hours building this frankenbike:
The SLX Dynasyst is completely incompatible with Dura Ace barcons. Yuri and his plethora of spares yielded an older XTR that seemed to work. It does need a new rear mech. though. An interesting combination. More research prior to assembly my have helped in the end. I hear it works though!
After that, a lunch break at a sushi bar and some mild preparation, Yuri and I met up with RivRidingMike at T100 and we contemplated where to ride and where to set up a camp in, yes, the Phoenix Mountain Preserves.
