But 735 would look much nicer :wink: Did you compared weight to short or long cage version?

Agreed, but all I had was a 735 long cage, which was about 25g heavier :evil: Still a weight-weenie build! I'll keep my eyes peeled though, but I do like the wee road mechs.

Also, mocked up the decals for the Hardrock tonight...

Specialized on the downtube about 2.5cms too short... Emailed Gil with info.

He really really wants to be a police marksman :shock: :shock:


Poor pics sorry :oops:

Still a wee bit of detail painting to do,along with a hasp and lock, then a couple of coats of polyurethane varnish :?
A few hours work from recycled timber from someones bin :D

I'll be interested to see how that holds out Alex ,in light of all theses horror stories about rewelded alloy frames.I mean if theres no real basis in these stories then maybe buying damaged frames to be fixed might be an ok idea :?
