I'm building this up, partly for me to hoon about on, and partly for my son to grow into.
It will run a 1x9 Sram set up using an x9 rear mech and an x7 shifter with Stylo cranks and a 32 ring up front.
I'm thinking silver post as i don't like too much black :D
And i want to hunt down some light tyres to keep the weight down a bit.
Wheels will soon be on the way, but there's no rush for this one :wink:

PS. Hose lengths will be adjusted in due course :wink:

It probably won't stay in one piece long enough to warrant painting the forks :D
