Very nice indeed! What about a 3T pro titanium stem?

A nice Pace RC45 is another I've considered. Be good to keep it as British as possible :D

Anyway, only one item arrived today...

So I decided to concentrate on getting the rest of the decals on. Bloody time consuming, cutting bits of helicopter tape slightly larger than the decal, but I don't want the Purbeck grit ruining them :D

Getting there!

I tried a silver rc45 on mine and didn't like the look at all - might be worth a punt with the very rare dark gray version. Have a dark gray Ti titec that looks nice on mine and have a de-purpled Raleigh Ti one waiting in the wings.

There's a nice grey one on ebay (us) at the mo, but it'd be too long for my stumpy little arms.
I think it'd look ace too :roll:

Just ordered one of these to try... http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=15438
I like the look of it, so we'll see how it suits the frame

Interesting stem - build wise suspect it will either be perfect or awful :)

Yep. It should be here Saturday, so time will tell.
I'll then have everything ready to finish the build...apart from a 31.8mm front mech.
I was sure I had one too :roll:

Thank you!
The stem arrived on Friday from CRC...and was damaged :roll:
It did look nice though, so I ordered another one. The front mech is on its way now too, so should have it finished this week :D
