Got an awesome deal on this frame so its going to be my first bike build. Taking everything off my Novara frame and putting it on this and using this vintage RockShox Duke SL fork i also got for a good price.

Sorry for the terrible phone picture. I'll take better ones later.

Also, does anyone know what size diameter integrated headset this thing needs? Google has been no help. I'm thinking 41.8 but i only measured with a plastic ruler not calipers.

Have a click on my build thread for my old lookout. Great bikes and you'll be super happy! I'm sure I had a Canes Creek on mine but Chris King do them as well I think. Ask you Local bike shop and they are def 1 1/8th.
Put some protective tape around the head tube as the guides are close to the headset and you get loads of cable rub :wink:

Ive gone through that thread quite a few times prior to getting this frame. It was what brought me to this site. I can't wait to ride it. Hopefully it will be all put together by next weekend.

Here is what it looks like at the moment. Almost done with planned upgrades. Just need a wheelset, tires, and a crank really.
