@ Dodger747: personally never been a big fan of Specialized anything, but that is one product that they make which looks absolutely awesome! Very nice shoes and hope they work well for you!


I'm a huge fan of Specialized's shoes and saddles. New shoes are perfect, all the S-Works technology but proper Euro-pro styling. The best looking shoes released since the Poggio 4s IMO...

Decided to shed some weight from the MTB and improve the braking (Juicy 5's, OK, but need a firm pull and are a bit on/off) so today I have bought....
Pair of M775 XT levers (one needs a missing cover)
M800 Saint front disc assembly (Caliper is like XT M775)
Pair of M965 XTR callipers

So I'll be running the XT levers with the Saint front caliper and the XTR (direct IS mount, so no adapter which saves about 35g itself) rear, I may still need to source a hose for the rear or the XTRs may come with one (from a member of my club, he's not sure what he has)...... Should save a total of about 130-160g and improve the braking 'performance' as well.

Cost so far has been £70 (around US$100) I may need about £10-20 in sundries but will have a few bits to sell on to offset the cost like the M800 lever and the spare XTR calliper (as my Forks are PM) as well as my old Juicy's, so net cost should be about £50 or US$70 for the upgrade - BARGAIN!

I will of course be checking every component I can on the XTR calliper to see if I can lighten the Saint, for example the pad retaining pin and snap ring assembly has a different PN on XTR.......

I just bought 2 record bottle cages for an obscene amount of money.

However, they were the best looking ones that would match my new bike.

Photos of both together when they arrive...

In what manner do the record bottle cages match your new bike?

Does your new bike look good, not work properly, break, and cost an obscene amount of money?
