    i like everything but... carbon crankset on an old steel bike looks weird. also, what gearing are you rolling there? what rings on that crank?
    i would also drop that susp fork asap for a ritchey or similar low crown fork.
    WTB: Bomber Z2 1 1/8 steerer, in good to excellent shape OR bomber rebuild kit.

    Thanks for your interest and thoughts!

    Hehe, the carbon crank was a deal I could not let go, I was initialy going for a polished Campagnolo Centaur alu crank. So this carbon crang will be swap crank for my Yeti Road project for hill and long distance races.

    Gearing; rear cogs is a 10 speed Shimano Ultegra 6700 11-28 cassette. In front the crankset is a Campagnolo UT compact Centaur carbon crank with standard 34/50. I will try to find a black Ritchey WCR 46 or 48 chainring.

    The fork came with the frame and it wil stay. I am mostly riding on fire roads and a suspention fork is a must at high speeds. I have other bikes with ridgid forks.

    i consider a mag21 dead weight. that ritchey screams at fire roads w/ ritcheys rigid fork. just my opinion of course...
