Blimey, he looks young there.

Im glad i wasnt going mad, i was so sure he was running the 753 fork, i knew he had a disc drive from the WS, but again couldnt be sure if it did get used on this.

Looks like a Roberts stem too....... Good effort mate, im chuffed for you... 8)

I've got some xt thumbies but no suitable levers, so at the mo it's going to be near full m900 with rc35. Until I find the correct forkplay fork. Also swapping out the campag threaded headset for a Chris king ahead. Just to be able to ride it until I source the spec items.

What an improvement from pg1

Not sure on the Syncros stem but everything else ticks the boxes for me !

I liked the x-lite stem I previously used but was 1 1/8 so needed a shim, and i needed more rise. I kinda agree about the syncros but also liked it because of the rise and the colour was more unusual to me than the standard black one. That said maybe a black syncros would match more?
