Popped the (expensive ebay win) IRD forks on over the weekend. They do twang a lot but they are very very light.

Also popped in a titanium steerer and its made one hell of a nimble ride now.

Also allowed me to put the blue pauls back on - makes the bike far more complete now.

Nice. 8) Must be very nice ride.
Is the lettering on the Cooks seatpost supposed to be that way? Looks the wrong way round. Although i seem to remember that they look correct on the driveside and not on the nondrive. It makes sense to me honest :lol:

I need to find out how much my bikes weigh - would have been a good opportunity at MM to find out as I think John brought some scales along.

I'll have to invest in a weighing machine. Or take it down the local vets and get it weighed accurately on the dog weigher!

Jez, that is looking very sweet - would be interested to see what it weighs..

Are the rumours true that you're lending it to Geoff for the NC's this weekend?
