Oooo...I'm getting excited now, the build is coming on. I couldn't sell the Hope wheels so the Kings are gone and red hubbed Hopes are on. I prefer the black rims against the ti and the red hubs/red lettering on stem and post works well (even though I do not usually like red).
M975 brakeset on their way and black ti rail SDG Bel-Air

I am not a weight weenie but so far it is silly light

Another mock-up and a bit closer to the end.
Forks are DK Tuning forks which will be repainted if I use them for this build. Their A2C has added 10mm over the Pace RC31 forks.
XTR Brakes sourced...cabling needs tidying, I know :wink:
Very happy with my Ebay purchases of Syntace post and £20 Ti Bel Air Saddle.

I agree, change the bars. They're a bit brash, let the side down, what?
