I am sticking with my original plan of orange and black, and I'm taking the frame with me to the Bristol show on Saturday so that Chas can have a look at the frame and tell me what the best course of action is.
My inclination at present is to get CR to do all the work and fit me a headset of their recommendation. In the meantime, I'm gathering parts at a snails pace, as dictated by finance and availability.
Still can't get the BB out though, not even with a new tool and a knuckle bar.... guess that'll be another job for CR
Its going to look very nice in orange and black. Good luck at the show, I wish I lived close enough to pop along as I bet its an awesome show.
Could you let me know what headset they recommend please? Still undecided myself as to what to put on. I might go for a Campagnolo one but they cost a small fortune....
Good luck with the BB, I'm sure CR will be able to get it out – hopefully!
Really looking forward to seeing some pic of the bike...
