Great bike, love the paint job...but not liking the stem much.
Bit too much rise and it needs slamming down an inch. Great job overall though.

I acquired the frame last year :) I was going to wait 'till I had all the parts before starting the thread, but the 'Britsh Steel' thread got me started on it :lol:

So, out with the polishing kit before taking some pics.....

Image

The frame has come up really well, with a nice deep lustre to the paintwork. The pics don't show it off that well unfortunately :roll:

I plan on a mostly M900 spec and it has taken a while to find nice stuff that isn't too expensive :shock:

Chianset with Middleburn ti bolts

Image

It's really rather clean :D

Image

As are the STi units :D

With a nod to Dave Lloyd's 'roadie' heritage; a Dura-ace headset is fitted.

That's all for now :)

I had the frameset after Wadsy, see link in my signature. It was indeed a beautiful paint job.
