Thats one high seat! Is the bike not a wee bit too small for you? Lovely finish, always found Ritchey tyres on the squidgy side. Whats the bare frame weigh?

Beautiful spec choice.

Loving the CBR cranks and Dura Ace rear mech.

@ Wold Ranger : Thanks for the comments - the seat is usually 1.5" lower however had just washed the bike after todays ride and had been playing around with different posts and not measured it :oops:

Found the tyres great, especially on the pine forest trails today, 1.7's just cut through everything.

Not sure of frame weight - it belonged to Jez before me, he may know but its clearly not too weighty :D

Not sure about the bar ends, but it was put together with slicks originally to play 'chase the roadie', however I thought the knobblies were more appropriate for its photo shoot, and it gave me the chance to fly round Sherwood Pines this morning :)
