Thanks for the post Rad, sorry it's taken so long (almost a year!) to reply..
truth be told, I rather like it as a SS and if I put gears back on it, well then I'd have 2 geared retro rigids and wouldn't know which one to use!
Its under gone some more changes since I posted any pics up. mostly thanks to al-onestare and his karma'd Cindy. P2's on it finally, some nice white grips to match the white legs. I'm still contemplating having the forks powdercoated in a chrome effect to match all the other silver shiny bits, but i may back down and try to colour match the grey of the frame (and have that done too) The Scratch and Sniffs are about to go for muddy duties. the only thing missing from the wheelset that got donated is a collar on the front hub. Wanted ad to go up shortly for that.
Some nice silver avid v-brakes to replace the black ones that went on the Tequesta from bhill, cheers fella.
Would love to have a slightly more boutique SS specific chainset on there, but for the time being this is ok. Currently on a 32x17, not the 32x18 in the pic
