Here's couple of initial shots of my new plaything. I'm currently on a search for some disc brakes to do her justice. I expect her to ride as good as she looks.

And an innertube. :)

Looking good. Needs a tad more red at the rear - seatclamp maybe?

I like it a lot ... apart from the tyres. I prefer blackwall with black disc rims.

The cassette went in the post today.

... and they're 165mm Hope Mini rotors aren't they? A little more braking power for the sake of 5mm of spacers. 8)

185mm on the front and 165 on the rear. I'd like to swap them round and have the extra braking on the rear but I need more adapters. Shakedown test tomorrow, just hope nothing falls off :D

What a lovely ride :wink: . Only niggle was the flat bar seemed a bit narrow, although its wider than the ones on my other bikes. So i've fitted some big fat carbon ones with a small rise, much better.
