Made some progress today. Now sorted the hubs and rims, just got to wait for them to arrive and then get them built. Will keep the details secret for the time being as am dreading they may not even arrive! But if they do, they will certainly compliment the rest of the build.
This FRO was originally going to be quite a sensible spec and i was going to be a little bit more extravagant on the Ultimate. But once i got started i couldn't help myself...
So I now have the IRD seat post and turbo saddle fitted, and the headset. No pics I'm afraid I will take some tomorrow, ended up that the headset top nut wouldn't take the FTW quill stem so a 10 minute job turned into 2 hours. Plus we haven't stocked 1" headset spacers at SF for a very long time so luckily the guys at Certini helped me out. Got to drag my favourite tool out the workshop tonight though, a 6" bastard file which hasn't been used for quite some time. As you can see it did the trick, top nut now fits nice and smooth
Will hang a few more bits tomorrow and upload some pics.
Still waiting on some Bullseye BB bearings before i can fit the cranks - hopefully they won't be too far away
Keep your eyes peeled for minty 730 canti's in black and true temper bars in white please guys.
And still haven't decided whether to build it with the Hite Rite or not
