Hopefully won't be too long till its finished - fingers crossed. Just waiting for some cables and then I'll get some pictures up.

Carl, has yours got the clear plastic cable tubing along the top tube? Have you seen them before on other bikes? If it does could you do me a big favour and take a photo of them as I need to try and get hold of some for mine.

Anybody know where I could find them?

Thanks

Yes sure, ill get it washed down, and take a pic for you! In the past for a lot of my cable runs, i have used stripped electrical cable, taken out the core and used the sleeve, see sum of my builds, i think the cannondale has it. :D Ill make a call tomoro, see if clear is still avaliable, and let you know. :D

Essentially 531 made with reduced wall thickness and heat treated to increase tensile strength.

Interesting to see that later catalogue - no mention of the Hope disc version though?

Thanks Carl, really appreciate it. If I could find some of those then it would be the finishing touch.

I wonder if the hope disc version was the next year?
