Stalled a bit this one as I've been so busy on other things.

I don't really like the shape of the DMR bars so I might be ordering some other ones that would be more my shape.

Got some Middleburn cranks for it now, was waiting on the right set!!

Need to get it finished so I can still ride it in the nice weather!!

So I started fitting the Middleburn cranks, X Rays and the Maguras.....

No chainring bolts. Doh!
Wrong BB length. Double Doh!
No Gripshift washers. Triple Doh!
Hoses about 1cm too short on the Maguras. Quad Doh!
Noticed spokes are all really loose. Quintuple Doh!
Can't find the front mech...... oh I give up.

Orderded some stuff from CRC..... never going to get this done!!

I must say, this isn't going to be a lightweight bike - it's a struggle to pick it up!! I think it's made out of solid bars of steel rather than tubes....

That's the trouble with riding a Kilauea, it tends to put everything else in the shade! :lol:

My daughter is bringing hers with her when they come down on Friday to pick up the Saracen...

...wonder what I can persuade her to swap for it? :facepalm:

Owing to financial pressures I think I'm going to sell this one on. :-(
It's a shame but I still haven't finished it and it needs riding.
Will be in for sale section soon.
