I love these frames. Looks really nice in the white and blue.

Have or are you going to get/use the blue collar and bits for the KS seat post?

Will follow this with interest. :wink:

Been super busy so not updated the thread. Bike is built up and had its maiden run at the weekend at Glentress. Hard work on the climbs due to the tyres and a shot stem but very good going down. I have now fitted a slightly longer stem and some faster rolling Kenda Blue Groove tyres.
Just need to find time to try out the changes.

A few pics from Glentress
