    I am leery of old carbon. The glue that bonds the pieces is rumored to breaks down over time. I'd strip the Maguras and Girvin, along with anything Deore or xtr, and put whatever is left up for sale. Plus maybe the wheelset, quality 26ers aren't getting more common.

    Steel is real!

    *Apparently, the Maguras are a b@$+@®& to set up!

    Maguras are rim crushing monsters...the Apex predator of the rim brake world! :grin:

    The CF looks nearly perfect on this thing. I say nearly, because there is a difference in shiny-ness across the frame. I'll give it a good washing and see if it makes a difference. I'll have to do a little googling to see if CF has dry out/rot like fiberglass...and if so, what can be done about it.
