Hope alloy anodised headset spacers with a carbon one also
FSA straight bars
Magura HS33 rim brakes

Kalloy seatpost
Bontrager rims and hubs with black stainless straight spokes

very nice frame for a rat :lol:

how do you find the half link chain? I was told they stretch a fair bit at the start?


Ive used a few half link chains now and they do stretch quite a bit, more so than normal chains but thats because of the design of the side plates, all you need to do though is once it goes slack just pull another link out.
