    Yup, I have the XTR v's in the back, been on there since that group version came out in the mid ninetys'. It has been a daily rider for more than 2O years. Running Ritchey cantis on the front. This is has been my set up for this bike and has a mismatch bunch of part of best from that time period. the V's are slightly better than the cantis and the profile of the v fit more closer frame. Performance inprov in the 90's
