Very envious, that is beautiful. Good luck with the build!

I have been steadily accumulating bits noe for the build, and with the latest Logic chainset arriving this morning (thanks Sith!) thought I would update the thread.

Instead of going down my favoured 'as catalogue' build I have decided to try and slightly 'bling' up the look a bit. This mainly means Syncros post and bars I guess but also some nice Mavic 'Citrus' wheels. I am not completely swung in their favour but they are growing on me and I am actually starting to like the look of them on the frame. I think the decals kind of help as obviously the orange/yellow fork is always going to be hard to put anything against.

Rest of the build will be XT STI's 7 speed, some real nice XT cantis, front and rear mech. I have two stems on route from Canada - a black Ritchey and a black Rocky Mountain - so will see what works best. Gonna be all black cables, WTB skewers, and a lovely Flite to finish off.

We'll see how it all looks together but for now a few (quick) pics (tyres are on for show only and will be replaced with nicer ones when build complete)

Ha, it's the sun shining down on those rims that's worrying me :)

Lovely – don't see many Stratos frames around. This will be lovely when it's done.

I must get mine finished off.
