finally some progress.
I really am in two minds over the colour of the frame. I have removed most of the colour from the rest of the bike and it is looking a bit better now. still might strip and polish it one day though.
Groupset is mow almost complete xt 729, polished race face cranks. I have retained the kore riser but swapped the stem for a ringle copy. I will either swap this for a silver kore or polish it. grips are now black lock on jobbies but will be swapped for black onza ules at some point.
saddle is a 91 flite - will locate a later one at some stage but no rush.
wheels are mavic somethingororther (239 rings a bell) with xt 739 hubs and an 8 speed cassette.
needs something sorting with the x lite seatpost, either swapping out or removing the blue anno.
i have a judy crown and steerer so i can run aheadstem without the converter too.
anyway here she is at present.
