Well as a teaser, it's 9-speed with SRAM X9 shifters as opposed to 7-speed Pauls thumbies...

...and the theme is another 'iconic' name other than Ritchie 8)

So what's it going to be then? , a surprise :? ..

Well I'm pretty sure I have everything I need to finish the build, apart from the decals, so if I can sweet talk SWMBO into letting me 'play' for a couple of hours on Sundays I'll have to see what I can do...

...though suppose I ought to check the weather forecast before making rash predictions like that :facepalm:

...and there's the small matter of the new strimmer that arrived on Monday and keeps whispering 'Use me, you know you have too...' every time I walk past the gazebo!'

Well :facepalm: so much for no more surprises :shock: and i'd go for the red anodized mallets but thats because i'm not a fan of the spud's but when it comes down to it at the end of the day pedals are a pesonal choice ;) ..

Not much of an update because the Kili Comp makeover has taken up what little spare time I had this week; however, looking at this little lot...

...it would appear I have a complete bike that just needs putting together!

Ta... 8)

Shortly after the pic was taken the heavens opened, on what was supposed to be the hottest day of the year, and by the time I'd finished the Kili it probably took longer to dry everything off than it would have to build it! :facepalm:
