Yeh! Looks brilliant - just like we said it would! You've worked hard at getting it to this condition, now enjoy riding it (when the weather improves!).

Nice job done! Please put cables behind the bars as they should be :? Is there a reason for two different pedals?

i ended up taking ernie out and putting about 10 miles on the cyclometer (LOL).. man he rides nice :).. very happy with the results and everything seems free and smooth and trouble free.... certainly a different world to my mountain bike (not been on a road bike since the end of the 80's!!). way easier to keep up the pressure on hills :) but man dya feel the bumps! :)
