Very encouraging... But I suppose the bloodspill isn't over yet... A white industries crankset on the way, probably. :roll:

I saw it without paint and it had no trace of rust... very good apart from an invisible ding on the tt. BTW, was it originally gray?

You spent less than £500, which is considerable less than a new one and yours, with the new paint, could pass for new.

When people are asking close to £200 for an Orange Prestige, I reckon £500 for an IF is a bit of a steal.

GREAT!

Headed downstairs, to my garage. Dressed as a tough mechanic, hoodie, track pants, sweatshirt over hoodie and slleveless fllece jacket, ready for a long building night. Maden ride tomorrow morning! Put up my Mrazek brakes, after having patiently changed the pads, get ready for the disassembling of the ti rig to move some parts and HERE WE GO!

The IF cable routing is UNDER the TT. Hadn't noticed. Need that bloody plastic thingy to run the cables under the BB. Building night over! Gotta wait until next Saturday.

Dunno how I managed not to psyche out!
