Here's a couple pics of the stem machining to hide the Flight Deck wiring, I also installed a Ti bolt kit. This still needs to be stripped and polished to match the seat post.

I started some mock up on the controls; I'm happy with the hidden wires for the F Deck. Still have to finish the custom mounting bracket for the display. More on this later...

I'm trying to decide which Front derailleur to use; Help?

FD-M950; I've not used one of these before. Not sure what to think of the fancy movement of it?

Or FD-M953; Classic top swing goodness!

I'm not quite sure which Flite saddle I want for this. I've got a Flite Ti on it for now but, I'm temped to go with a Flite Evolution 2 or maybe a Flite carbon rail. Hmmm...

Tonight I polished a bit more and installed some Ti button cap bolts I ordered for my seat mast and shock mount. Installed some other Ti bits in the rear linkage and stem. Did a bit of trimming on the stem cap and installed alloy crank bolts.

I also started mocking up for my front derailleur cable housing stop. It'll have to be a one-off custom job, YAY! :) I love a challenge! If any of the RB Engineering Dept have anything to add about custom cable stops please have at it!

I'd like to run the Amp D1's or Formula R1's. My biggest problem is I don't have the adapters to run ISO calipers on this frame and fork. It's not like I can buy them anywhere :( .

These wheels are so pimp it's got me thinking RetroMod!

Retro brakes on modern(ISO) hubs! Front is done, except for painting the calipers. Rear bracket needs to visit the horizontal mill tomorrow. Sorry for the crappy phone pic.
