great build... I re-read the hole thread, which is always a good sign!!

I love how the discusion started with 'wallhanger or not' and now you've ridden it! Hats of to you!

nice straddles too. what did you use for the cable?

I used a set of Dart and Smoke. I still have to nit-pick a few things and sort the seatpost q/r before I do any finished pictures.
