I bought the frame & forks off Clockworkgazz a few weeks ago and have finally got round to building it.

Loads of bits to do and parts to change yet and the forks are off to Fluffychickens for a service but as it is it seems to ride very nicely.

I need some nice straddle cable hangers for it if anyone has any suggestions?
Thought green might work but what do you think?

Just paid for some chill pills off Degs so that just leaves a new seatpost to order I think.

Replacement cranks are on the way as the ones fitted have a slightly bent spider :(

Don't worry about it Gaz, I might be able to straighten them properly when I have the time.

I think the green chill pills would have worked well, might be in touch about thise :wink:

send me your address and I'll send them on- they looked lush and were a great match, the rockhopper is why I got them.
