Here:
Not sure if anyone noticed or if i mentioned it yet but when i got these wheels rebuilt with the revolver hubs, i had the front laced with black spokes on left, silver on right and on the rear is black right and silver left 8)
Now rebuilt again with red nipples on every silver spoke.

Got a new chainring (red e thirteen).
New bars and stem (will be looking to add some red to stem, maybe anodized faceplate).
Did have some red levers from america, purportedly foes ones but they were abit pinky so looking to possibly strip them at some point and get them re done.

And the CHAIN - it took me 4 hours! to take apart one chain, every link, as i had a silver chain which wasnt as wide as the red one. I was going to just do silver/red/silver/red....
It is red/silver/red/silver and the opposite on the other side like this, -_-_-_-_-_

:lol:

Anyway.

Thought it would have lasted longer really, think i have got less than a year on the chain!
Think i have been pretty slack with lubing it and what not though and it went onto a worn chainring.
