Just need some decent pedals (can't decide between SPD's or changing over to eggbeaters) handle bar grips and cables and then she is there. Really pleased with how the rear drop out has worked - need to tension the chain though. Not sure about the tyres, but this is going to be a rider....

Slick! I'd loose the saddle though a carbon one or at the least black would be nice.

Cor!

I really do like the look of that. Quite understated, just a few little nice touches of colour, and proper stealthy. Looks quick too.

Looking forward to seeing it built up, you're so close already!

That is truly great! :D Hard to see that the design of that frame is almost 20 years old. It's rather timeless.

VERY well done!
