I like how the short stem looks.

Also the skinny tires with the fat fork legs appeal to me.

It actually handles very nicely - not too fast or restless at all.

Looks like a great run around bike.. what is the weight??

I think you should replace the purple skewers with blue ones, it will look better IMO! 8)

First I didn't like the purple skewers, but now I'm kind of used to them. But yeah, maybe I'll have to reconsider.

The total weight now is a bit over 8 kilos.

Bit random, but is that a compact (94mm) spider? After one for my m952 cranks if you ever part with it or know where I might find one... :wink:

Yes, it's a 94 mm spider. Was really happy to find one myself.

That's news to me, thanks very much - I'll get googling (optimistic but got to start somewhere!)... :D
