Really nice, apart from those shimano wheels, I just don't like them. Apart from that super bike. A couple of questions, how tall are you, and did you have to drill out the cable stops to run the rear disc hose along the top tube.

Thanks for the info, I have a 2001 Pahoehoe (gold colour) which I am rebuilding also size 17". I looked at the top tube cable guides, still have the metal sleeves for the brake cable, but always thought they would be too small to fit a hydraulic hose through. Still need to find a 27.0 seatpost in black with layback, I have a Raceface XY in silver, so maybe go with all silver rebuild. Has to be flat bars now that I have seen yours.

Build is underway, i have it ready in a few days, just waiting on some wheels.

Reason I asked after the face issue was if BB faced it runs smoother & BB life is longer, so contact is stronger.

Faster harder stronger longer.....eating M&S ice-cream from the larder! :twisted:
