Well progress has been really slow on this one,, but nearly there... :) , chain and cables to go on and set up ,, :)

And just deciding on gripshifts or thumbies for the shifting duties..

I want to change the seatpost too for something a little nicer, but finiding a 29.8 is proving a little bit of a challenge... so not sure if to run a 27.2 post and shim it.. ? hmmm...

How's she 'Look'ing so far.. :)

Thanks fella.. ;)

Yes I played around with silver as the main components are silver,,, but think the black works better on the higher part of the frame .. hmmm..

I'll do some pics tomorrow with silver stem and seatpost to show what I mean.. ;)
