Thanks all. 8)

I had quite a disastrous mishap with the build last night, so no updates for at least a few days until I can get it sorted. :cry:

Front brake bolt sheared off in the stud. :evil: I need to take the fork to a machine shop so they can extract the bolt from the stud and hope they can do it without ruining the threads. :?

Actually it was a standard Shimano bolt, but the head sheared off clean. I'm not sure if it was defective or if I put too much force on it.
