Tricked out my LHT

So I was going to build a semi budget build LHT, then I saw some nice items on ebay for great prices.

I got a Hope FATSO Titanium 36 hole front hub for 55 bux



I'm looking for a matching rear hub if anyone knows of one

Shimano XTR RD-M960 Rapid Rise, long cage Der, new for 75 bux



Shimano XTR FR-M952 front der.



I bought both the Top swing and bottom swing because I'm not sure which one I like. I'll check them both out. Got these for 25 each

Had to go with the Sram PG-990 9 speed cassette to match the red hope hub






More to come.. Looking at buying rims, spokes, and cranks next.

When you said "pimped out" I was thinking 60 spoke gold wheels. Nice stuff so far though!

That's some pretty nice stuff at some really great prices. Let us know how you like that rear derailleur. I am going to be replacing my ultegra and was thinking about getting the rapid rise.

Now you need some 1990s red anodized Kooka cranks, some Paul "moon units" on your brakes, red ano Kong stem, and a red ano Kooka seatpost. Be careful, though, because anodized fever is expensive.
