Ok... the pre-respray build has been finished! All parts seem to work/fit. She'll be stripped and shipped to BJ this week.
Steering felt slow - The headset hadn't been cleaned/lubricated so therefore that's probably to blame (as well as the low tyre pressures).
Stem is a bit low - I like them higher, so therefore I'll be fitting a different cinelli stem (in plain aluminium too - I dislike the gold!).
It's weird with downtube shifters - My other bike has brifters, and I'm SO used to them that this is a little odd! It'll take some getting used to.
BIG clearance - I had the tubes squeezed into a slight oval in order to increase clearance, however I wasn't expecting to be able to just
get a 32 section tyre in!
Light - She weighs 10Kg. Not bad IMO - my Specialized Tricross Comp weighs 9.5Kg despite E5 frame, carbon forks and carbon seatstays!
