Predictable? Moi?

Depends on where I am on the rollercoaster that is the mind of a flawed genius.

Oh and white or red grips and cables? :wink:

So, I got to wash the frameset and oil it this morning before a road ride.

65 miles later, having let the excess oil drain out, I was back to do some more to it. :D
Took the headset back out, and greased it up well before re-installing it.
Then a bit of elbow grease was required!

T-cutted it. Couldn't see the benefit of metallic polish and being thin as water, I thought I'd use the normal polish. Came up ok I think. 8)

Hard to see from the photos, but it came up really well. :wink:

I will just use nail varnish on the worst ofthe paint damage I think.

Also painted a tatty looking Ritchey seatpost, Plastikote used for this.

I want to tidy up the stem too, but waiting to see if I can get a Breezer sticker for it first.

Also got some of the parts together for the build. Ritchey Logic cranks were camera shy! :lol:

It will be time to start assembling soon. once a few more bits arrive.
