Just thought I would post a couple of pictures up here as way of saying thank you to all those that have helped with the parts.

Ok. Not quite finished yet. Just waiting for the new to me forks. And the headset is being swapped for a silver Crank Brothers one.

And special thanks to the builder who can not be named on here!

Not a fan of the purple, and the gold post looks a tad lonely, but I love these bikes... LOTS


You'll be sleeping in the shed with the bike if she sees it on the sofa :oops:
:lol:

I have removed all the purple bolts and the headset will be going too. I do like the cables though.

The post does not look that gold in reality. I have a USE Alien Ti post in silver but it has an inch long 'crimp' in the back. It is above where I would clamp it but I was not sure if it affected the strength. Never before heard of the manufacturer of that yellow post but it is Ti and only 20g heavier than the Alien.

Argh..........and yes the sofa. All my bikes live in doors with just me. So no one to chastise me :D

I like that.

the front mech cable outer looks a bit on the short side.
