good luck!

Building is still in progress. I'm waiting for temporary wheels, so bike is completed only in a half.

Some photos:

As you can see, I've removed gold handlebar and black stem and put there silver parts. It was right way indeed.

Now I'm looking for light and nice silver handlebar and stem. These are temporary.

If I receive wheels during this week, bike will be ready for first ride in weekend :D

Original forks are nice - just wish my wrists would accommodate them.

My green Team SX has all carbon tubes including seatstays & chainstays all joined with alloy lugs :wink:

What a nice IBOC thread :)

I saw this rigid fork, looks very nice. Personally think that using rigid fork with carbon lugged frame can weaken or even break it. That is why I've bought Z2.

In this week I've bought new Onza HO pedals and IRC Mythos tires....
Still waiting for temporary wheels....

Keep your Z2, the pedals are a great rarity, and IRC Mythos tires on all my bikes because they are great!

I'm more worried about my body than the bike :lol:

Picked up these carbon Manitous last year they go well and keep the weight down..

Can't imagine how light the carbon bikes are as the bonded alloy isn't heavy.

(PS i think there's a reddy/orange pair of Mars CL carbons in the 98> sale section ;) almost identical to your frame)

*edit : they are here, i think i saw another set recently too, would match your frame so well! however you have nice Z2s so maybe not ;)
