ok, not updated this in a while - been all over the south now on the hummingbird so far this summer - hampshire, surrey, wiltshire, south wales, devon, south glos etc....
and i can't fault it the frame - it was exactly what i wanted...
changed the bars to some Radley carnegie's, i tried the alloy ones first after getting them for a bargain on ebay, but now have the carbon ones as i liked them so much - no more long ride aching hands. Also i've have recently bought a brooks swift ti - thanks SM500! - only put that on this afternoon, so i've not tried it yet, proberly will on tuesday, was just sick of wareing out gobi's - 3 of them in 4 years (the last one has only taken 6months to show signs of ware, but then again i have been commuting on this bike as well over the summer so i've been racking up the miles).
oh, any just for the hell of it i've bought some (more) ti bits, stem bolts, seatpost bolts and axels for the pedals - just because i was board on ebay one day (got them cheap too).
my only niggles, are that the forks arent quite as stiff as i'd like, so i'm on the look out for a 2nd set of 20mm reba lowers... (which i'll spray up to match),and the weigh, whilst at 27ish lbs isnt massivly heavy, could be better.
The only macanical i've had is the chain coming off once, not even a punture! but i think thats because i'm using Panaracer Fllataway strips in both tyres - would highly recomend!!
any way here are some pics :
