I assumed the grip in the pic was all the way on. I'd wait and try it with the brake levers before doing anything rash :)

Great opportunity to get the correct bars this time.

Azonic
2.5 inch rise
Single wall
Rough black Matt finish
:wink:

This build will be fantastic if done right, and attention to detail is a must!

The single walls are always Matt finish :wink:

Just thinking about the paintwork. Why Dont you just get the top tube painted and new decals, then clear coat that would preserve the nice original paint on the rest of the bike.

Every time I stand over the top tube wearing Jason's beanie, i find myself doing that silly "pretending to ride the bike like a nutter thing" from the music video part of DIRT..
