Just fitted the correct Mavic bottom bracket supplied very kindly by DBMTB
, just had to salvage a bearing from the longer MTB Mavic BB that I had and it fits perfectly. The chain line is much better now with a 113mm axle. Also Kettlo sent me the photoshop artwork he did for me and I got the KAS labels printed onto white vinyl and mounted, the printer also covered them with a gloss protector so that I could use them...I did say it was for riding! I went out in the hills in the Peak District near Buxton last Tuesday and had an ace ride with my 42x21 up some 12% climbs! its so comfy and being smaller I didnt really notice the flex, the brakes are also much better than my 1970's campag super record ones on my Rossin. I'll be using it this weekend (weather permitting) on our club Paris Roubaix ride round Cheshire, that takes in some cobbled climbs and trails
There really are some very kind people out there on this forum, I hope to return the favours soon where I can help out. I've attached a few final pictures.
