finally done, been a "hard" project as i was being held back by a tight budget...
for my X-gf, who plans to commute to work, when it gets a bit warmer..and wanted a nicer bike..
new frame and forks, size small, and a mix of used and new parts...

Always liked the kafenback, nearly baught one to replace an aging touring bike, liked there understated looks, never knew they had flash paint jobs, hope the GF likes blue. Mudguards and rake with panniers will make commuting much nicer.

it looks like flame-stickers, under clear-coat...
had the blue RF-headset, and the cable hanger, so got the blue seat-post clamp, but dicided that blue saddle and bar tape would be overkill...
mudgards underway...

cheers

I'm building one for my wife at the moment, in the caramel and brown colour scheme.

It's currently 9 Speed 105 on drop bars, but I'm also getting a set of straight bars and shifters because she'd prefer this set-up for cross racing.

I'll get some pics up in the 'show us your cyclocross bikes' thread when it's complete.
