Everything stays the same, colors and parts. Except for two things.

With help of one of the RB-members (maymanymany thanks) the Syncros Revolution cranks I have will be put on the bike again. The 135mm -6 degrees stem will be replaced with an 130mm +6 degrees Syncros Catteprod. I am still trying to find an 130/135mm 0 degrees.
