So, I finally finished this build bloody ages ago.
It was previously posted under this thread
but thought i'd post a fresh one.
It saw me to work every day through the winter... culminating in the rear brake caliper disintegrating due to the ravages or salt... the boys in barnoldswick replaced this under warranty so all good!
Took me a while to decide which bars to go with. I wanted something wide(ish) as i love the 720mm bars on my Pitch. The Sunlines fit the bill perfectly.
All I need to do is buy a black layback post, but the silver one from my Lava Dome doesn't look too out of place for now.
Oh and maybe replace the 9s with 10s...
