Those forks were nicely painted and about to go on when a set the right length for the frame came on. So here she is now. I'm gong to paint the stem and forks black when I can be arsed. For now no more faffing and some riding

Looks nice now with the more correct and longer fork. The old Velocity still looks out of place though. What about using a "quill adaptor" and an ahead stem? Adaptor should be fairly easy to find on fleabay and stems are ten-a-penny :-)

M569 cranks (4 arm) arrived and fitted. was planning to continue the m739 route but they look so much better with the black top ring. Now just waiting on a ea70 stem to match the bars and she's finished. Very excited. Pics to follow. She is a long way from the white lava dome, with gold detail I had planned to build. After finding out that was for some reason crass common and vulgar (and not totally awesome!!!) and getting a purple frame i'm about as far away from that as possible. But totally loving it. And she rides like a dream on and off road. so pleased with the end result if not the end cost :facepalm:

It's a battle between angle and pins and needles in the wrong places. Could come back a bit though. Will have a go on the next long ride
