Thanks Mike. I have some 3DV, but I thought that was too much purple. I like the black with the black decals.

Okay, this is it. I finally found the components that work for me. These are the final pictures. I added Paul Canit Levers in purple ano. They made such a difference with the braking. They have a longer throw that the Kookas.

That's fantastic. Straight out of an seventh grade dream for me.

Is the 2" mark on your post enough to get it beyond the bottom of the top tube? It would be a real shame to crack it.

I believe so. I will check it today. Or I could go in for a leg reduction procedure. :wink:
