Got to be the first bike of yours I've seen without an 'ano bolt kit' fitted :)

Are they the thoroughly modern Tioga bars from On-One/PlanetX site ?

First time for me i recognize a Specialized fork. I love it. Any more info on that? I would put on the green chill pills instead of blue ones.
Looking forward to see some updated pics.

There might be some detailed internal pics soon if all goes right (or wrong :lol:) Assumption is they are pretty similar inside to the MAG20/30 fork.

I've found a use for this at last.
A really nice granny ring USA made (vuelta?) 26 tooth granny. Doesn't go with anything I have, but matches your bike :)

I took this out for its 1st ride this morning and it performed very nicely apart from finding out that I hadn't torqued the cranks up properly and having both arms come loose miles from the car :evil:

Fortunately Mrs Fluffychicken came to the rescue by driving out to us with a 6mm allen key :D

All done now apart from a set of lock on grips that haven't arrived yet and and a nicer pair of wheels when funds allow.
