Agreed, I think it would benefit from a Black stem again :wink:

Oh and a 1/8" chain, if you're keeping it SS

Well I like the stem (for now), but I was scanning headsets, wondering if I might inject some colour that way.

My first thought was turquoise, which obviously led me to Chris King.

But.... I had no idea CK released new colours last year, and they are incredible, especially the Matte Punch Pink.... woah is it bright!!

The site I found was called Saddleback, and they have the full range of colours, one of which really caught my eye called Matte Slate, and as soon as I saw it I knew that was the colour for me!! :facepalm:

So this morning it arrived.... the first time I've ever bought a Chris King headset new! They've always been second hand up until now, but this colour is too new!

Anyway, feast your eyes on this wee beauty!! 8)

That is quite something. I have to say though, I'm not a big fan of the tyre and I think it detracts from the overall look of the bike.

I just think that something like the Halo Choir Master R would have set it off IMHO.

The finish looks A1.

Well, the headset is fitted, and to be honest the new stem and bars should have been here by now too, but I used 'Ubyk' for the first time ever for this order.... The parts were shown as 'in stock' and i'd been told via email that "the parts are in dispatch now and will be sent tomorrow".... but tomorrow came and went, as did the next day. :roll:
It seems that they are now on the way though, so hopefully not too long before I can finally finish this! (for the second time! :oops: :shock: :lol: )
