Have I forgotten anything?

Postby BigAl » Mon Nov 11, 2013 00:44 am

Ok so lots of new stuff arriving in the post. BUT I can't have it till Christmas day as (obviously) it's my present from the missus

I have:
Charge Duster frame (new) - headset cups fitted, seat lamp included
Recon forks (old) - crown race fitted
SLX groupset (inc brakes, chain and cassette) ordered from Merlin
I have wheels (XT on 717)
Stem, bars and seatpost (Crank Brothers Cobalt) ordered
Saddle, grips - I have
Pedals - need to buy
Post to IS mount adaptors, 10 spd Powerlink, new gear outers, cable ends - to buy

I'm not gonna see this stuff till the 25th.

Have I forgotten anything? I wanna ride it Boxing Day

sram do not do 10spd powerlinks. they are PowerLocks.

.. And need a tool to undo - which kinda defeats the point

Was looking at the KMC version - any good?

(new to 10 spd)

Helicopter tape or patches. Gear cable inners, outers, end caps and crimp ons. Do the brake hoses fit if they need trimming barbs and olives to shorten.
