Yep, still a few bits need tweaking as its only in its first incarnation, don't forget! - will no doubt look a bit different a few weeks down the line!
You're right about the mech, Edd, but this'll do for the time being. As for the saddle, a bit of a contentious choice I admit but I was trying to replicate the Orange catalogue of that year where the majority of the bikes had brown saddles fitted. Got a Flite/USE combo on my Alu 'O', so wanted something a bit different here, but i've got the correct sized shim for the Prestige so will pop up a photo to please the Flite afficianodos
Slicks on for now (until winter) as its in commuter mode, Ben
No suitable amberwalls yet, but got a pair of Conti Cross Country 1.5's waiting to go on...albeit in a blackwall...
No doubt I'll pick up a pair soon, though. As for the stem, its not that easy picking one up in a 22,2mm flavour but its fine for road use, if a little stretched out!
Going on a proper ride this Sunday, so will report back then but having taken it for it quick spin, I'm very happy with it - very fast and responsive, runs like, er, ....clockwork
Thought I'd done a good job on it until you see Sinnerman's on the same page!!
