Just changed the DBR Axis TT a bit. Fitted some RC31 ti forks to replace the Fox suspension, added an Odyssey Ti Brake booster on the back and changed the tyres:

Next up is a change to the RTS - managed to get some modern V brake Sids to replace the fox forks that it currently wears (no other changes planned, though may introduce some spin wheels depending on what I do with the STS's).

After that it will be deciding which STS to keep, transplanting the bits between them and selling one.

Then it will be the Dynatech - as the DBR is now rigid, thinking I need to change the DynaTecj to suspension up front or the bikes are a bit similar.

Then the summer project - powder coat an old saracen e-stay white, let my kids colour it in/draw on it and build that up.

During these, I hope to clear the decks of builds I really just won't get to in the next decade - anyone want a litespeed obed FS or an Amp B5?

Rebuilt my 96 Tequesta for about the 5th time after nearly selling the frame which I would of regretted.
Arguably its best build to date, just waiying on some Kore risers arriving and new zmax tyres so I can take the crap splashbacks off.

The RTS update has been completed. New forks and brakes. Still not sure I think the crank arms go, could do with something a little more black but I have a very limited budget now so it would require swaps or worse, powder coating the ones on there.

Next up the clockwork (again), this time with some carbon front forks (exotic) with a 1 inch steerer. Axle to crown isn't right but my wife wants a sit up and beg shopping style bike position so this will help some way towards that. Brakes and gears will be swapped out from m737, to M739 sti and XT (or onza, totally overkill for a bike that won't be ridden much, but with the cable run as it is, it's the best option I have) v brakes.

I went and looked in my shed at around 7pm

Was still staring at 'stuff' at 7.27pm without moving a muscle.
