    Ah, thanks. I knew it looked like a Jones, but someone mentioned Wolfhound somewhere else. I actually have been living on an island, though not a small desert one .

    Your camera makes the guy in the first pic look a bit pink. Those knobs on the racing ralph look bigger than usual too.

    ^ Shimano Ice-tech.

    Love the new 2011 XTR stuff. Why didn't you get the rotors too?

    I also love the i9 wheelset, but I may be partial, since I have a set too. Enduro version, right?

    I thought they looked like heat sinks.

    This bike isn't mine. I just built it up for my Amiga.

    It feels like a friggin' road bike!

    Those finned brake pads are a trip. $50.00 retail to replace. Although, regular, garden variety Shimano pads will also work.

    The new, high zoot, XTR rotors are not available in 6 bolt, only centerlock...so she opted for Magura rotors.

    I've said that a few times about my 29ers, in a good way. I should've known about the rotors only coming in centerlock.

    Since you built this with flats and a bash I'll assume this isn't a race bike and will be riden on you type of trails, so hoping you got a guard for the DT and lower rockers. Kind of an oxy-moron type build to me, but whatever floats their boat.

    the adapters don't let you put centerlock rotors on 6-bolt hubs, they adapt the other way around

    +1 on the Ice rotors.

    Why did you not get them? Floating rotor with alloy laminate braking track.
    It is light, long lasting and disperses heat easily.

    brain just caught up....centrelock, the reason I do not have them =-)
    I have the XT rotors, almost as nice.

    Forgot to add my first thought. That is one pretty bike and looks amazing (I am normally quite unimpressed by other peoples rides, but that is a stunner).

    With that steerer tube configuration, Fo could happily ride that bike backwards on his commute.

    I believe the technical term is Carpet Fibre, not Plastic.

    Nice pedals.
