Yeah, never been a fan of that Mavic chainset to be honest.

Reckon I'll stick with the Dura Ace chainset and brakes and try to track down a matching headset and levers, possibly seatpost too. Might go for a White Turbo / Rolls too.

Dark saddle looks good I reckon, nice contrast to all the white!

Hoods arrived, hopefully will get taped up tomorrow. Given the levers and stem a polish too. Unfortunately when cleaning the old sticky gunk from the bars the solvent has taken the cinelli logo from the stem, nevermind.

The clearance from the rear tyre to the seat tube looks minimal to say the least. Nice short wheelbase because of it I suppose.
