Chain is on the wrong way? Never used a halflink chain before so will rectify asap :shock: :D

Levers, hmm, just STX-RC - can change as and when.

The handlebars - not changing!

They are Rody's Luv Handles 8) http://groovycycleworks.com/extras.aspx

bars and levers are just personal preference

if you look closely at the chain the links are flat on one side and normal on the other . on a bmx the flat side is on the outside to stop the chain catching on grinds and pulling apart . itl make no difference to you though so no real need to worry

no, it's a good point - I prefer the aesthetics of the smooth outer 8) Just hadn't noticed it until it was pointed out!

Myself, I'd change the forks to steel segmented 5 piece, but the only ones I have the steerer is too short :roll:

nearly - from memory it's 44:20. A *tiny* bit on the tight side but that'll slacken off with use.
