well..



firstly.. my attempted trip back in time (friction gear levers!!) has failed lol. i just couldnt hack them!!

so ive sourced the SiS version of the 600ex levers I did have fitted. They look rather nice and new (NOS items). my rear mech technicly isnt SiS but i have added an adjuster to it and all seems to be shifting very nicely indeed :)


working on


ive just got hold of some great condition Biopace chain rings and i'm now on the look out for 600ex crank arms... also need a 600ex stem :). anyone know to any??

no tri color tho lol... :lol: :lol:
