here is the real question:
if your running twist shifters, then why not just go to the XO twists and XO rear der? much better performance than what you have currently.

+1 :D

As I hated gripshifts my Nobu shifters work very good for me and far better than Attack shifters I've had before.

Looks like your brake and shift cables could lose a few inches ... And you really need to run a full length housing to the rear mech?

Very, very nice, Robin! It seems to be a race-ready bike, especially with Racekings.

cables coudl be trimmed. yes, on the scalpel you need full length housing for when the seatstay flexes, otherwise it could flex and shift.

so your saying you dont ride it? XO is far better, even with the red rear der. For quality of a shifter, you cannot beat the XO with any other twister out there, and they are light.

I'm a bit worried about that seatpost on a mountain bike. Then again, perhaps with the rear suspension one can get by with a lighter post than might be wanted on a road bike for the same amount of exposed post (obviously a stronger post is needed the more the exposed length).

What cassette are you using? Red's not good for mud, but then that's not the main point... It's now available in 11-28.
