Good work. Love the cranks. Did you go 11-36 in the end?

Thanks everybody :)

I went with the 12-36 cassette, as 48 chainring is rather big, but looks great.

I cover about 20-25 miles daily and will see how it goes, as there are no big uphills. I will consider a 45 if this proves to hard, as this was my previous bike setup (same cassette)

The bike rides amazingly. I had no previous xperience with cromo, only what I have read in here,and I come from a Sunn D-Toxx with a kinesis rigid fork, that is super fast and loves corners, as long as everything is flat. But unfortunately our roads down here are far from flat....

(I have also builded a Scott Sub 20, and discovered with how many different pains can your body complain about your ride. Getting older and alloy frames just don't get along I guess)

Will write more info when I put some miles on it.

Cheers :beer: (no beer emoticon.....Some admin to fix that plz)

Nice work!

In terms of the other, it looks very similar to my old Hahana, which was originally 200GS specced, and would have been a 92
