Solved the seatpost problem tonight turns out to be 26.0 so for the time being its got the only one I had in, a scruffy Concept post that was standard fitment on my Univega.
Next payday I will find something more suitable for it :)

Thought I would put the wheels in and see what it looked like.

Weighed it while the wheels were in and its 24.2lbs with just the chainset & chain to go, not too bad for a big frame :)

Looks good and the black with silver rings goes well.

I'm still waiting for a part from the Sith, probably a lost parcel though as our posts been coming through. Though not going to see it now till the new year (if it turns up a work anytime as I'm now on my Hols). So I've pulled the part of my other bike to get it working, so maybe a nice present when I go back. Nothing major though, silly bugger forgot to include it originally... oh didn't see you there Sithlord :lol: :lol: :wink:
Damn snow. (love it really)

So on to the YMCA bike next then ?

Final all in weight ?

looks fine chris!

not too many diamondbacks around. aint it a killer when you are waiting for one critical part, such as a seatpost? holds everything up.

im sure you will have fun out and about later on giving it a final tune up.

cheers. 8)
