Oh yeah. Beautiful frame.

IMO - ceramic rims, skinwalls (must).

M900 throughout. Black where you can to match the decals. No more than a few matching ano bits (ie. seatpost and stem)

Black M732 cantis are hard to find, FYI. your Ano selection could look great, just make sure it matches :)

Going (slightly) off topic on my own thread :oops: I'm thinking of Pauls or Grafton canti's and yeah, getting ano to match is my current turmoil (Chris King blue seems way darker than Ringle/Cooks/Grafton/Pauls) :evil: :evil:

I find that buying three times the amount of parts you actually need works well, swapping them all over after every ride until you find a mix you like, and then changing again when you see a different part that looks nicer is a good way to go about things.

despite the fact ameybrook was being somewhat tongue in cheek, my next build is acyually based around no more than a stem. I have lots of other bits now, but no frame. or forks. so its not so much a build as a small box of nice stuff. I do have a theme though (too expensive to build/failed companies/just plain mad)...

I continually set myself a budget. then find something i prefer so buy that. then kind of figure i may as well make the rest of it top notch. then get carried away.

thats no help at all is it?

still, your Funk looks awesome.

I'm building a rigid Pace 200 singlespeed. Might take some time.

Parts so far:
USE red handlebar, black USE stubbies, Pace carbon front hub, pair of black NOS Porcipaws, full set of replacement frame bolts in Ti

Next step - stem, 100mm Pace
Then forks, headset (Hope red)
then a frame , wheels, brakes etc
