Im new to this forum. Currently working as a bike mechanic in an outdoor retailer.
Just bought myself a new MTB to do a project on, its a Diamondback Peak HD. Also bought Shimano Deore XT cranksets, Deore XT shifters, Deore XT front and rear derailleurs, Deore XT cassette and Deore XT chain. Also fitted Shimano hydraulic Disc Brakes.
With regards to the frame Ive purchased a stickerbomb album from amazon and I am going to stickerbomb the whole frame, I know its a bit of a marmite thing to do but I love the look!.
The bike is currently sitting as a frame with just forks and a headset on it so hopefully ill be starting the project tomorrow night, not sure when it will be finished but ill keep updating frequently.
The disc brakes that are on it at the moment are just standard shimanos as far as im aware but payday is next week so i might upgrade these to the new Deore XTs as Ive read a few reviews and the new system sounds pretty good.
Looking to upgrade the forks aswell at some point but im going to do a bit of shopping around first to see what i fancy.
Will hopefully have some pictures up soon.
Cheers for reading,
