Thanks!! I'll probably try this, too.
Do you already have a side shot of the bike? I'd like to see how the Ringlé stem looks with a cable hanger and the rigid fork.


sorry Jan, no side shots other than whats posted, haven't found a suitable hanger yet, will keep you updated though 8)

Bit of an update after a change of direction with the build , Have dropped the black Syncros post and Cooks Cranks in favour of Silver, post and Grafton Joysticks.

Just need a silver (or turquoise ) headset if some one has one spare

A bit of an update on the Fade, this build has been on going since June 2011, I have been distracted by other ,easier builds.This Aquafade is taking allot of time to source the parts I want to build with.
It has also gone through a few spec changes as often is the case, when you try options, they don't work.The crux for me is finding some Grafton re-entry levers to match the speed controllers.None for months upon months, then 4 pairs come up in a couple of weeks :evil: ,but sadly they are going for stupid money, So am considering replacing the Graftons for Shimano's -we will see.
I have even considered selling this frame set on due to not being able to build the way I wish, second best will not do for this beautiful build (for me anyway).

Outstanding parts to finish the build are as follows :
Brake levers (sore subject)
Rear mech
Bottom bracket
Chain rings
Rims (the mavic ones I had for this build , I pinched for the Grello build , so on the look out for some silver Mavics or Camp rims.)

Here is the updated parts bin for the Aquafade, a silver and Blue combo, cannot decide on colour of seat post, have both silver and Blue options
