Finally, here it is. It's not the "pure" English build I might have gone for, more an eclectic mix of what I had and what I fancied!

Pace RC200 F5
Pace RC30
XT front and rear mech
XT V brakes
Zero Flex brake levers
XT Thumbshifter
WRA chainset (not sure on age, but I liked the look of it!)
Front wheel: Mavic 121 on Pace RC50
Rear wheel: Mavic 217 on XT
Stem: Pace RC45
Bar: Yeti
Grips: Yeti
QRs: Hope
Pedals: DX SPD

It measures 19.5 CtoC. It looks huge, but feels smaller than I expected when riding.

The saddle's a Flite.

I'll take some close-ups of the chainset. I really like the way it looks, it's hollow too. I bought it off someone on here in Germany - well, Pace bought it off someone as he was getting something else so I got him to get the chainset as well to save on postage!

Yeah closeups would be cool. The flite looks really different from that angle - has it been altered in some way / is a newer version?

the cranks are either Roox or Steinbach (both from Austria)

Close-up of the cranks as promised - you can just about see that the arms are hollow.

WRA Cranks. Identical to Roox and Steinbach.
