Glad you put this in BOTM. It gets better each time I look at it. I hope mine turns out that good - when I get round to doing something with it.... :oops:

Did you get a chance to measure the bottom bracket for me. :wink:

Good luck

Thanks Will,

I didn't receive a PM but that doesn't mean you didn't send it.

Technology eh? :)

Thanks for the measurements, that's a great help. At least I know what to look for now :D

Cheers
Gio

I bet your wife looked at the bike, then at the clear blue sky and thought "Ten minutes? Yeah right!".

It looks even better in its natural environment. 8)

just a question..the forks have the legs a different colour..was this the norm?

If so balance wise wouldn't you have done the same on the rear stays?
