|After picking this up on E-bay a couple of weeks ago, I finally had enough time off from work to dial in fit and do some obligatory parts swapping. I was looking forward to slapping on a cross wheelset and hit the trails today but woke up to rain and more rain. arrrgh . . .
I'm still not 100% sold on keeping the Magura brakes. I haven't used bar end shifters since my Campy friction shifters on my Bottechia of yore and I'm not super pleased with them. I may try Kelly take-offs in the near future.

|The bike is very nicely maintained and speced. I drove down to pick it up in person at his shop but never actually met him. Let him know it's in good hands.|

Ive never seen maguras on a cross bike, I new they had them, but I guess there not that popular.
