Beautiful work Frank! Loving how this looks. Did you end up using that RM seat binder bolt?

I think I already voiced my preference for the Flite Ti, but it's really nit picky at this point. This thing is in 'dream bike' territory and I don't use that term lightly!

As requested, here it is with the alternative XTR tyre wheelset I have. It's bright and sunny today so pics are not as good as prev set the other day. Not sure I trust my work on the front wheel build. As well the rear brakes needed some adjusting for the wider m236 rim, as opposed to the other set which were both m231 front/rear.

My feelings at this moment is the grey Umma Gumma tyres, black Syncros seatpost and Flite saddle. Just noticed today that the RM badging on the drive side of the RM/Vetta saddle already showing signs off peeling off. And I've only used it for one or two short test rides around the neighborhood! I have to address that immediately before any real damage occurs. :(

I saw the shot, but I wasn't sure if you had used the actual bolt as you mentioned you didn't want to cut it! But yes, it looks great!

My vote is for what you said above...grey Umma Gumma's, black Syncros post and the Flite saddle. Should be perfect.
