so..... these should have been the last parts to finish the build, caliper mounts and some nice black Ti bolts for the Thomson stem.

but, as things seemed to have escalated from a parts point of view (i didn't originally intend to buy a matching ENVE seatpost (which they've just put into Black Friday Week 3 the feckers!! :evil: ) and bars :oops: ), the corner i cut to be "sensible" by buying XT cranks started to niggle a little, and CRC have XTR Trail cranks on Black Friday Special, so i pulled the trigger on a pair and sold the XTs. :D

now i need to wait until they arrive before i can get this completed..... :facepalm:

new XTR cranks arrived this morning, and other than swapping out the double rings for a single ring, it's finished!
really pleased with how it looks, can't wait to christen it and see what these wagon wheels ride like! 8)

That looks extremely purposeful.
