  • So, this is my first MTB build / project. I’m going to wing it, and see what happens.

    It’s loosely based on a red 853 I saw on sale here, a while ago.

    Plans is:

    Exotic carbon forks
    Hope Wheelset pro2
    Hope discs tech2
    Shimano zee

    The frameset already came with a XT Deore group & Magura forks which I sold. I have kept the Easton finishing kit, as it seem to look ok, and will do for now.

    I’ll leave it here for now, recommendations will be kindly received

  • Wanted:

    Zee Chainset
    Hope Discs Tech2
    MTB Skewers

  • I haz a Chris King headset I won't be using any longer, bu it won't fit in with your current colour scheme.

  • Looks lovely, what's the clearance like on the fork?

  • Plenty of room to swing a cat

  • This is gonna be so rad

  • Little update...

    Avid juicy discs bought off a work colleague for £25, little bit on the large size, but they will do for now.

    New Shimano Zee Chainset from the Wiggle eBay shop £43.

    The saddle is temporary, and will need to investigate a different stem once I’m happy with the reach.

    Just need to get a headset, probably FSA pig, chain, cassette, grips and rear cable and then it’s pretty much done.

  • My other little dilemma is the lack for front cable guides, can anyone recommend anything?

    I don’t want to spoil the lovely carbon forks.

  • This is looking so good, I love the forks. Going through a 1st time mtb build too atm

  • ziptie

  • can you write a little more about how this works please?
    very enticed by the description.

  • Route the cable through the inside of the fork leg. Don’t want it on the outside off road.

  • It works like regular tape but it vulcanises over time like patches on an inner tube.
    If done neatly you get a nice little rubber ring that is flexible and doesn't damage the hydraulic hose.
