I missed mine, was going to buy the one from the UK here a couple of months back, but missed it by the time I noticed it. :-(

i think you're referring to the one in the same that banshee is getting delivery on. wouldn't it have been a tad small for you? :?

Yeah, I received it a couple of weeks ago, haven't had time to completely put it together with renovations, working out of town and finishing the RekTek. Hopefully I will have time this week???

small update in the works. as i had pulled the Syncros stem and bar off this to complete my Altitude, i needed to source an appropriate replacement. after some time hunting, and a bit of disappointment with a listing here on RBUK, i got some consolation and scored this ti beauty. :D

stem wise i'm debating between the early gen Syncros quill stem with the stem cap like i originally had, or a later gen model with no stem cap. leaning towards the later as it's a tad shorter in length.

build is complete, aside from decals and maybe refinishing the frame back to it's satin finish.

along with replacing the stem and bar, i've also swapped in a set of ESI Racer's Edge grips in place of the KCNC "Titec Pork Rines" style grips, and a grey flite saddle. I wish the saddle was in a bit better condition, but it's decent enough.
