For me this build would really fit lx m563 stuff wherever necessary.

Should be a fun build. My kili has mostly lx on it. They ride great, mine gets used all winter!

I like your thinking

I have an LX M560 crankset - black arms and silver rings looks very cool, so could make a good aesthetic balance point, tying with black/silver components

Yeah, that'll look ace!

I'm really looking forward to getting it built up and having it join the fleet

Yep this is a fun, for sure! It's all nice light work this build, just swapping parts about to the right balance

I've heard so many positive things about these frames - Certainly looks like it will handle well - And the more I look at it the more I like the way it looks - It really is from another time!
