Thanks for the comments.

not sure if i'm a fan of the yellow saddle / how are you going to polish the cranks and not lose the spesh decals?

Yeah, the yellow saddle won't be to everybody's taste but my last build was all silver and grey - so I'm liking the colours of this one!

The logos are engraved (that the correct term?) into the arms, so they'll still be there after polishing.

Yep, hoping to get it finished while the ground is still reasonably suited to speedy summer tyres! :)

Have the cranks back now, but the S-Works logo was lost with the polishing! :(

Never mind, they’re probably more suited to a non S-Works M2 build now.

All of the scratches and gouges have been removed and they’ve been clear anodised so should stay looking tidy for a while… :D

You have to take off a lot of metal to remove the S-Works logos from those cranks. :shock:

Looks superb. If it were mine i'd ditch the gripshift as I just dont like them, but the rest is spot on. M737 is awesome.

Didn't bother with the Gripshift in the end...

Decided to stick with Shimano Rapidfire (M740).
