got a little bit further along on this, went and got the bb shell faced, it's definitely good aluminium coz it faced up beautifully, then was the search for a headset, bit of a pig that one! ended up using hope headset bearings and crown race with a token top race, i didn't use the hope top assembly because it left a gap between the top assembly and the top of the head tube. then fitted the bb and chainset. race face chainset, bar, stem and post.

this will get put on the back burner for a while now though as i need the rest of the gearset etc. still haven't decided whether to go 9 or 10 speed

here are some update pics

:D

got the last few parts on this today, a mirage 9 speed rear mech turned up from ebay and i picked up a chain from the local shop.

i'm not sure about the bar tape, i was gonna use black but i had white lying around so i decided to use that.

thanks to Ed for coming to the rescue with the ergo levers after a little problem on ebay for the original ones i got for it.

also, i will be changing the ribmo tyres, i have some vittoria tyres coming on a single speed condor coming in the next week or so and the ribmo's will be going on that instead.

no chance of a test ride though as i start a nightshift at 6pm. just thought i'd finish this before i have my dinner.

here are the finished pics :D
