    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.
    Everyone's a roadie, they just might not know it yet.

    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.
