It's had a few changes recently :) .....

Litespeed Ti stem with ti bolts
Titec Ti handlebar
Syncros cranks with Syncros rings (42,32,20) and SRP alloy bolts
Middleburn titanium self-extracting crank bolts.
Dean Titanium seat-post
Mango CK headset

Also the fork travel has been dropped from 80mm to 60mm as the 120mm stem didn't work with the longer travel.

Just waiting for the Syncros ti BB and still looking for a 27.0 Syncros ti 'post :?

A few pics.....

this bike gets better and better! The Litespeed stem is great, and I like the grips too. Where did you get those?

Thanks for the comments :D

The grips came on my '97 Explosif when I bought that, I haven't seen any others since :?

Purely from my own personal perspective I preferred it with the spec. in the pix with the Control Tech stem - that was nigh on perfect...

...I don't like this version at all... :cry:
