Definitely a worthy new owner... :wink:

Good start fella.. 8) Only reason I never cut the steerer was because it was a brand-new one from Tim, and I couldn't bring myself to chop it, :oops:

Thanks bud, glad you approve. The steerer should be trimmed up this week and the kooka rings should be on too. Im going to stick with the blue ring bolts and qr's though as the go well with the decals 8) That seat post is a right pain to get the clamp tight on though :oops: the saddle is actually dark blue but it doesn't really show in the inside lights. I'll get some decent pics at the weekend.

Yeah I'd encourage the use of washers on that seatpost bolt, and maybe even a change to a slightly longer one with an allen end..
