8 wraps on one side , 9 on the other. Sticky tape not placed in identical positions both sides, different widths of wrap left and right.... the OCD brigade are presently eating their own teeth. :mrgreen:

Sorry OCD just doesn't cut it, if you've got it properly it's CDO because all the letters have to be in the correct order.

Great build, esp for the first one, really like the 10 speed tiagra group

Apart from less weight and the extra gear don’t think ultegra offers anything more, except kudos when you stop for a flat white with the rest of the MAMILs

Hmmm, looks like the tape was wrapped on the tops the wrong way - the tape should pass forward.s over the top face of the bars each side. That way your hands will tighten the tape while riding and it never loosens.

See what they mean about OCD?

You should put everything on this bike build into a single thread....so it's all in one place!

:-)


At least that way the thread is "assembled" correctly" ;)
<chuckle>

Starting to come together nicely!!!!
