Yes, me & Jimmy are really pleased with how it’s shaping up....

Now then.... if you want a little therapy in these troubled times, get yourself a buffer!!!

This afternoon our home-schooled “Design & Technology” lesson included the detailing of the renovated XT pedals by Our Jimmy’s big sister “Miss Peachy”

They certainly look a lot better.

Did a little weighing in of new parts. :wink:

We've given a few grams away here and there with the Marin Lite post at 359g being 19g heavier than the Kalloy, and the Marin QR clamp at 47g all of 6g heavier than the MTS offending Kona, but with the FSX Judy’s saving 828g (1482g compared to the originals at 2310g) we thought we could spare a few for the sake of the overall aesthetic… and still getting very close to 2kg of saving :D

Coming on a treat!

I'm genuinely in awe of the attention to detail on builds like this. Must be so satisfying when they're done.
