Less than that, depending on traffic.
Neil has furnished me with the lovely STS frame pictured. I spent a bit of time polishing the thermoplastic and alu rear end and it has come up a treat, though a little more on the alu would not hurt. Slapped on a chris king headset in black as well. I also accidentally knocked out one of the inner cable, grrrr, that was frustrating putting that back in, and will need to play it really safe when fitting new cables.
So, what to do with the build? Wheels will be spinergy xyclones courtesy of Peter, so when they arrive I would like to have the rest done.
Frame has a silver seat post so will stick with that and bung on a saddle from the collection, so what do we think on a silver control-tech or syncros stem? Bars will be either profile carbon (they actually look like the thermo plastic finish), or controltech in black.
Groupset is the quandary - do I take the easy option and fit m952 (as I have some not in use right now), or should I remove the M970 from my team RTS and bolt that on (pic of the RTS below for reference).
I could also go as far as going M770 shifters and mechs, m750 cranks, or more or less all m739.
Forks will probably be taken from the RTS as well (Fox Talas RLC), but whatever happens to the RTS, it will either get the m952 if I strip it, or may even get restored back to m900.
What do we think people, which direction should I take?
