Moderator, is there any chance we can delete the last 4 off-topic messages?

Anyway, I finally finished lug lining. I like the result. Only one thing - frame spray is chipped here and there so it looks like i was a bit messy with the paint. So I guess powder coating is on the way. And then lug lining again. By the way its harder to do lug lining on powder coated frames, cause the corners of the lugs are smooth and marker pen slips all the time

great colour too.
Like someone said, not sure about the spoking .. might prove troublesome in future.
the mavic silver anodised are IMO better than mavic bare alu cos mavic polished tend not to stay shiney and stain. Good if you have the patience to keep polished, not so good if you like to use and then hang up till next time.

Seatpin is interesting, reminiscent of the 70's testers who drilled everything out to save weight. Just make sure water dont go down there

What if I re-lace the rear one to normal 3 cross pattern, can I use the same spokes? The length of the spokes is the same on both patterns. I'm just not sure if I can re-use the spokes. The wheels haven't been ridden at all.

Thanks for the comments
