Good work so far.

As per the rims, i'd suggest adding another thread on the specific wanted thread, as you're more likely to get a response. :D

Good luck with the rest of the build.

Thanks! I just started bolting it on. Very pleased :D , just need to source suntour seat stem, seat binder and Araya rims that can be built on the suntour hubs.

I don’t know whether to install the BB that came with the set or leave the working sealed shimano hub that I put on the bike about 8 years ago. Yep, 8 years ago! Hardly been used! but may not be any good after all this time. Seems ok! What’s the general consensus?

+1 what bobcat says

If it works keep the groupset one as a spare for when it does pack in.

Thank you! thought as much. Just needed an idea so I can put that OCD part of my brain to rest. Just got my Avocet seat through and thanks to Konaglider rims should also be sorted.

Pics to follow.
