" These SLX derailleurs are as good as XT but cost less. Just mix it up with the XT shifter and get the same feel and when you smash it on a rock you are less worried.
The clutch is great (and looked after should last really well), but there is a distinct mechanical clunk to the shift/not as smooth as Sram. Also the Shimano shifters do not have the same ergonomics.
"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, High Quality

one of the best options for 10spd alloy freehubs

" If you have an alloy freehub body (for example a hope pro 2 hub like mine) the cheap cassettes just eat into the body. I have found that this XT cassette has a nicer build up that the Sram X9 and the price can be better too.
It has a fair weight for the money too and the life of these is far better than the more expensive/lighter versions.
Overall it is a great cassette for the money.

" To get a cooker and pans all at this quality for this price is unbeatable. It may not be the smallest or lightest product but it is the best quality and most reliable.
I advice buying these bigger sets over the small as when advised to me, and I paraphrase here, the small may take up less room but you often want more to eat after a big day, especially if there are two males.
If you are practical and want the best/most reliable cookers/pots that pack down well, buy Trangia. If you want efficient or super small cookers, do not get this. Buy a MSR Whisperlight Universal etc and buy good pots on top of that. For me the way it all packs up and its reliability, I could never pass Trangia sets. "
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Rugged, High Quality, Versatile

 Hope Hoops Mono RS Clincher Wheelset
Hope Hoops Mono RS Clincher Wheelset
The Mono RS is the entry level wheelset in the Hoops RS range. Combining strength, lightweight and reliability. Now with a 40 tooth ratchet ring to speed up engagement times making them the ideal wheels to train, race or tour on.
 

As you can not get these in silver I am looking to build some myself. Can you give the spoke lengths I will need to order?

Is there a possibility to get these wheels in a silver version. Silver Open Pro's and silver Hope Rs hubs with silver spokes?

My friend has used a Sram 9 speed shifter to make this work with the 9speed cassette.
