C16r as honest as a bike gets. Power transmitted to speed and precision with minimum of bling. (always improved by a bit of (sachs) bling)

Right, as promised some further pics. I was going to try to build the wheels myself but decide to leave it to the experts so dropped them off at a local bike shop yesterday. Thought they were just too nice to learn on. So first off some more pics of the components.

Have done everything I can do in terms of assembly now. Waiting on a few bits and pieces arriving and the wheels are being built up at the moment. Really pleased with how this one is coming together and won't be too long before it's finished :D .

Cheers, just waiting on the wheels getting built then i can get this one finished. And need to speak to Gil about the decals, hopefully he's feeling better now. Should have the Dynatech Mission frameset back from the painters this weekend too so will be a busy one.

Had this one almost complete for a couple of weeks but have finally got it finished now. This is going to be a really useable practical bike i think. Enjoy the pic's.
