good option with some nice gil_m decals just to give a bit of colour perhaps?

The other issue do i go period correct 2004-06 parts? Which is unknown period for me.
Or go full modern KCNC as light as possible?

I understand the forks should be approx 420+ min long to make up for the lack of susser's.

Lightness yes? Are you made of money though? Consider Gub too

Forks should be 445mm for 100mm travel forks

Nice frame, it will look great with the Trigon MC01 on, they are chunky and it will suit the frame to a T, My Trigon's come in at 483g for a 195mm Steerer with Brake Bosses, they are close to 400 without.., only downside is the horrible graphics, although they can be removed with fine wet and dry.

FYI: Got mine for around £105 including postage after doing a 'best offer' to the many people that sell them on the bay.

After this build i'm most certainly finished as nothing left to sell unless i sell my vintage frame which i'm not going to do. I hate disc's the only way i'll have them if i buy a motorbike/car.
I think i can remove and will look clean & tidy. Plus will remove a few grams.
True your right they are 'meant' to be there.

Orange71 - Those spuds are Exustar 215 grams a pair. Work with Shimano cleats.

Hate disc's on a mtb. May as well fit an engine and call it a moto x bike (unless a pro down hill mtb) But not xc mtb.

Notice i will have a few retro parts - XC Pro mech, Hyperlight bars and a Hope front hub.

The fork is perfect. Much better than the Pace - 700 gram. Trigon-500grams

Is Masterpiece a 26.6?? No. I will get this post down to 160 grams will replace the clamp with carbon and cut it down to 200 long as this is far to long for me at 330

The disc tabs are coming off as i don't like them plus not needed as i wont fit disc's. Shame i can't remove the front tabs. nasty

Ah, there you have me - nope, no masterpiece in 26.6mm. That's a wilfully difficult size.

I wasn't thinking about the weight on the fork (stupid stupid me), more the fact that the trigon looks like it's designed for an integrated headset.

Now I feel so foolish...

Your correct on that fact. They would suit a integrated headset better. but nothing i can do. They only cost me £120.
Maybe fit a cloth headset cover would disguise it?

They only come in 25.4mm x 220mm but I shim mine up to 26.8mm for my road bike. Light and fairly cheap for a ti post.

Not sure where you'll get a headtube cloak though....

Got to say Argos have got to work a bit more on the customer service. I've been waiting a week short of a year and not once did they contact me to say sorry for the delay or any form of update on progress unless i contacted them. They didn't even send pictures of completed job unless i asked. But quick to ask for payment :roll:

Over the year i've had dealings with 100% British companies for expensive stuff (not just cycling) and no wonder the Chinese are booming.

looks good though 8) 8)

red/blue is now just a 'modern art' display. The full carbon will be the rider. Just have to buy a crankset for it then weigh and ride.

The respray will be looked after.
