Avid BB7 disc brakes with 160mm rotors, Tektro levers
Wheels are Mavic A319 rims with Shimano XT hubs.
Tyres Swalbe Marathon Green 35.
Chainset, front is Shimano Deore 44/32/22 and rear cassette 34/11

My old donor bike was given to Cardiff Cycle Workshops and hopefully it will be built up and sold on.
