All I can say so far is that it fits. I had my sandals on which don't go too well with eggbeaters and the grips have still to cure :roll: Once I get the fettling done I'll report back :)

Rust walls look fine now that it's built up K, I think the fade probably helps.

Forks painted with the same fade would be PHWOAR though!

What's with the solo black chainring bolt? He looks lonely.

So you know when the crank arm is pointing up.

Nice build though.

No reason for the black bolt, I just ran out of red ones. I was trying to use whatever blingy tat I had that I never seem to use. Fortunately I left the turq Moby out of the equation.

Cheers J, I'm hoping the position isn't to extreme, Yo's small head tubes and long top tubes aren't the typical geometry I'd favour but I'll persevere.
