I'll expect a box to arrive in the next few days with the correct parts then buddy :lol:

Looking back I'm quite embarassed by the original build. What was I thinking with that stem :oops:

I'm pretty sure I recommended it, as you wanted to get it out on the trail.

i really like that bike. how is it going? any more changes?
i'm thinking about changing my commuter to a dropbar setup. do i need a shim to mount the drop bars on a answer ATAC?
which aero brake levers are you using on there, ultegra 600?

cheers IM. the bike (well the frame) is currently on the workstand. Its had a full strip down and every component will have a deep clean/polish following its recent very muddy outing on South Downs. When it is reassembled there will be some minor changes - cages, bottles, turbo saddle and importantly a proper front wheel - M732 and M231CD. Then it will hang in my garage and possibly not be ridden again until MM09.

Yes, levers are Shimano 600 Ultegra. No shim on the bars/stem though.
