This probably more of a retro build than the 97-98 frame it's built on.
I much prefer the feel and function of Canti's to V brakes, so this has them and saved some weight to boot.
Forks are Tange Big fork, stripped and re finished in Blizzard white to match, 2 coats of Zinc primer, 2 of leveller 2 of primary then 5 coats of Hard Lacquer, they've come up nice.
It's a pretty Sveldt all up weight, at around 21.9 pounds, but has some light kit on it. DT race Wheels, Conti Tyres and tubes (sub 850g for tyres and tubes) Syncros Pro BB (150g)

Didn't want to over do the blue, but the extra blue parts tone nicely with the blue highlights on the Graphics. rides and tracks really well. Thanks for the comments.
