I fitted my handlebars, thumbies, grips and barends last night - only need to fit chains, cassette and cable up and tune, sounds easy?! shame I've got no cable guide yet (damm royal mail :evil: ) plus I hate setting up cantis and i've got some fancy (&complicated!) SRP ones to fit (from bonty1)

looks like i could be on the airborne, although that's filthy....
(it does have some retro control tech barends if that makes it retro?)
