It's how I wanted it so yeah its finished, If I managed to get a really nice M900 rear mech that may get changed and if the gripshifts don't work out I may change to rapid fire, but basically its done!

Took "Bluey" out for the first proper ride this morning, and to be honest my first proper ride for about 10 years too! :shock: :oops:

Decided since it was cold but nice and dry I'd go and try my old stopping grounds, the Quantocks!

I thought I'd break in gently and just go for a nice gentle ride, sticking mainly to the open heath rather than the technical singletrack. My technique is somewhat rusty!!! :oops: :lol:

Anyway took a few pics along the way, which was a convenient excuse to have frequent small rests for my somewhat untrained physique! :lol:

Hope you like the iphone pics.

Yes, but she doesn't know bikes & hence the value, she like's white bikes, and the colour coordination on yours.

Ps) A few pages back it looks as though your granny ring is facing inside out, but as middleburn provided spacers FOC very good service there, I guess it must be something else.

I can assure you the ring was the right way, all the graphics on the outside and the ring has recesses for the chainring bolts on the inside (frame side) face. It was very good service I must say since the cranks were no way new and I wasn't even the original owner! only thing would have been some sort of explanation, to satisfy my nerd gene :lol:
