Dave, chain tensioner is a gusset bachelor. I got mine from my local bike shop but you can get them on e bay for about £15. Ritchey bars were from a chap on here. There is one on e bay at the moment and a guy on the for sale thread has a new old stock one for about £17 at the moment. Take a look.

Cheers for the compliment.

Looks great and by the amount of muck you flung, must ride well too.

Had my eye on one of these frame and forks on Ebay, month or two back.
Wish now i went for it for a SS or a 1x7 build.

Will go for a ride to take my mind of it.

Brilliant build that, jim!

Any chance of saying where you got all your SS kit (and what exactly they are) please bud?

I've just picked up a 2000 Stumpy M2 frame and shamelessly want to mimic your SS set-up..... :oops: :lol:

(Imitation is after all the best form of flattery, eh?!)

Cheers,

Matty :D
