Nice. 8)

I have a cunning plan which may lead to me getting my grubby hands on a 17" Clockwork F&F. :twisted:

Its a small size so that helps, but the 150g TA Ti BB Vs the near 400g one makes a difference and the heavy seat and post. The chainset weighed a ton too. Standard Shimno skewers weigh 165/175 grammes, Control Techsweigh sub 40g and folks cant' nick your wheels, or come undone on the trail. The Spesh tyres save nearly 400 each end too!

Your CR 16r deserves a re spray! Don't they just ride nice! I remember seeing a Clockwork with a Matt Coffee Creme fade paint job in Len Reign Cycles, when they were on the go, with orange highlights. They look nice in Matt Orange too. I wish I'd taken a photo when it was filthy, you could hardly see what colour it was!
