xlite look nicest but I have gone for the azonics as they are flat, if you had black flat bars they would be best (do you have a tin of black paint?).

Aye, I might do the rebuild tonight :) didn't do anything over the weekend 'cause of the rain, nicer tonight though. I might even take the dirt off.

Next up shall be a choice of brake levers... After that?

Cable colour.
Seat/seatpost combos.
Rims/tyres combos.
Singlespeed spacer colour.

Possibly:
Cranks.
Cable hangers.
QRs.

Need to make sure it stays reasonably interesting and that I don't run out of time. Might mess about with the order of choices too.

I recommend rebuilding it to the same spec as you had originally- looked cool and it might be ready in time :wink:

Don't really mind how it turns out, it is the Shonkjumper after all... and the bull bars are taking it in a different direction anyway, so that's pretty cool :)

I'm going to keep throwing in garish choices, but you lot are all too bloody discerning :x

I'll meet you halfway mikee, I'll do my usual piss-poor job of building up the bike and spend most of the ride tightening things up, looking in bushes for errant bolts, etc.
