Firstly sorry for the phone pictures. Mate got this frame a number of months ago with a view to me building it up when he got some funds to do it. Over the past few months he has been gathering parts and it is finally at a point where it can go together. Well almost. It came missing a couple of bearings and a few needed replacing. I have done some but the two near the bottom bracket need doing and I really don't want to knacker them so Wheelbase are going to do them next Saturday while we head off out from Staveley ready for collection when we get back.
Got some good bits to go on it when I get there but got the tyres and tubes, rotors and cassette on it for now and the seat and post. Fave bit for me is these babies, DMR Vaults in Show Chrome.
