Well its first incarnation is finished.

Still got terrible wheels on it but its built and Im really happy with how the forks and stem look. No idea on weight, its light though.

Have only pootled around the block with it, need to take it out properly sometime. Chainring was the one the bikeshop had, think I am running 34 teeth front and 19 rear cog. Either way its harder then I thought (fitness is terrible!)

Built:

Hae some Judy SLs that I need to look at and some M738 XT shifters to fit at some stage. Just waiting for a front mech that fits my price range and quality, but happy to try single speed for a while whilst I wait.
