Coming along nicely! What are your thoughts on stem TC? Those ti 1 1/4" quills like Ivan had are hard to come by.

That looks fantastic!

The stem is PERFECT next to the headset - looks like they were meant to be together.

Not normally a fan of purple but it looks ace against the frame colour.

AHHHH, NOW I know why you wanted some purple handlebars :roll:
