Bike now in the rack, amazingly found the seat bolt clamp and the front mech roller! Was a bit worried I wouldnt find the roller and struggle to find an alternative


Love the colour, why the new reynolds decal...?

The frame was repaired and repainted by a member here - Biglev(Pete), he did the decals and added the 753 sticker - no particular reason why, hopefully makes it go faster :lol:

Fitting the brakes now. Just noticed these stickers! Thought they were standard issue m900 but apparently they are Proto Types, so must be good and worth a fortune!

Anyway went on okay

Having second thoughts now on the XTR brake levers and Deore Thumbies set up. Might just go with the proper XTR radip fire jobbies
