The controls!
That is: Stem, bars, shifters, brake levers and grips (and barends).

Always the best bit for me 'cos if you've got this far then the bike will be ready soon...
:D

Oh, and nice new tyres.

i like fitting tyres, changing from skinny to fat, amberwall to blackwall and black to coloured really changes the look (as well as a ride) of a bike, plus it's fairly cheap and makes a large change :D
(not really a bling thing tho :? )

Get the bike to fit my body. Those little changes that make the make yours. Seat pin height, seat adjustment, stem height, brake lever adjustment. Once all correct then the bike fits like a glove :lol:

quality control on these was sh,te. same frame, 2 different ringle cages, 1 would fit, 2 wouldnt. I've had to dremel the slots wider before now to get them to fit.
