Had this frame + Forks sat around for a while now, and ordered a nice white headset for it the other day. It turned up this morning, so thought it would be rude not to take it to my LBS to be pressed in 8) 8)

And so the 'Virgin' project begins.......

The theme of the project.....? As much whiteness as I can tastefully get away with, with a couple of splashes of red. Mainly a modern component set-up, but I think a couple of 'Retro' twists thrown in for good measure.

Comments would be greatly appreciated.....

Tried a blacks/post in and wasn't 100% on it :?
TBH the only black component will be the stem, and I opted for that to tie in with the red/black SDG. :wink:

Nothing's confirmed on it yet, except for the wheels/tyres :wink: , I might even end up getting a white stem and seatpost... :oops: :lol:

No no, the Ti beauty is going to be just that, so I'm being very particular about the quality of parts that go on it, at the moment.... :wink:
