ta, wasn't too bad, hoping to swap out the mechs and cranks for the old ultegra on the audax bike, sell the audax bike and hopefully the net result is £200ish upgrade. the frame's a 58, as I've decided the 56 (audax) is too small. the carbon rear stays should make it more comfrtable for the long runs and it has mudguard clearance for the winter, so hopefully - happy days

Finally finished the Marin East Peak for my youngest daughter.

It's a 15.5" frame with SIDs and XT front mech that I got off here back in February.
Collected all the bits to build it, some I had like self-built Hope disc wheels, XT rear mech and XT cranks, Magura Julies off here, SRAM/Sachs Waveys (new) off eBay, most of rest from here or my bike bits stash, it's all together at last. Upgraded the shock to a Fox Float R.
She's happy with it so hopefully won't shed a tear when I try to sell the 13.5" GT Tempest that I built for her 2 years ago, bought the GT off here then changed most of the bits. :roll:
