Twas nice. It's headed for the eastern US. A great bike and a tough one to part with. Still have an 18" in Midnight Aurora that is just a great bike for bumming around on.

As bought of Ebay, not knowing what it was.

Image

With some blue bits I had already.

Image

With some blue LX bits bought too. (Wheels are D521 with Blue LX hubs)

Image

As it stands now:
I don't like the stem.
The forks work OK but are cheap, i have some black rigid DirectDrive (Spesh?) but it may make it low as I usually ride a 19". Seatpost is about max.
It needs decals.
The Vuelta rims match the LX quite nicely though.
The blue Geax tyres look a bit OTT but not bad.
And the chain is an 8 when it needs a 9.
Flat bars look better, Azonics match the LX blue.

Form over function!

For those interested in cost, as it stands inc. the 2 wheelsets £123.

Picked up this Karakoram today. Pulled it out of the trunk, threw the wheels on it and snapped some pics. Will pull the pie plate and the bell off tomorrow.

I would of course need to swap my fork for one with a hanger.
