Thanks everyone, I cannot wait for the Pauls crosstops to turn up. Then the bits can all be sorted in black and the final build can happen:

Panaracer Timbuk II, you can buy them from mombat: http://mombat.org/MOMBAT/PartsForSalePages/tires.html

I am just doing a little group buy for RB members and I am collecting them from America to save us all paying customs charges etc.

Few bits have arrived while I was away. Firstly some pace rings off brummieguy:

And then the final bit from America. Ever since seeing Johns brilliant Yo I knew I had to have pauls brakes on it front and back, ideally some crosstops on the front. So when these came up on eBay I had to have them (crap pictures, better ones tomorrow):

Will be sending a large number of parts off to be anodised in black to match everything else. I look forward to the final build, its come together really quick.

I think a black big ring would make a huge difference.

I have some new cranks coming and once they are on I will decide what to do on that front. Its a shame as I had a nice set of Pace rings but I managed to damage the large ring :cry:

looking rather special indeed a credit to you, does the front v work with the m900 brake lever? Just noticed the canti rear/front v combo? and agree black chain ring would be lush.
