Had some time on my hands this afternoon, so I took off the XT front der. and installed the XTR I got a few weeks back.

Cleaned things up and re wrapped the bar tape while I was at it.

No pics yet tho, sorry.

Now my Crosshairs is ENTIRELY XTR!! (except for the Mafacs, that is!) Woot!

I'll see what I can do about the pics... The frame's still a little dirty/sandy from my last Ft Ord ride, but the main stuff is clean.

Riding again! That's wassup. ~10mi ea way to work/back, with other roads around to add to the distance once I get back up to speed (so to speak)

I don't believe that the XTR is retro compatible with anything else like the XT is, but you can certainly try! (I'd LOVE to have that XTR if you wanna sell it to me! The mtn bike needs a new rear der...) It was easy to combine an Ultegra cage with the XT body if you wanna make another XTegra. You MAY need one more hand to twist and push, but that's about it.

Rode the MC to Hollister today.

Off to Hawaii tomorrow EARLY AM. Back next week.
