I may have a black HyperLite Nader. It's on my brother in law's bike and is dead mint. If you want, I'll feel him out to see if he cares if I pull it if your interested. I like the silver bar though. The bike looks stunning.

Thanks. I know the skewers is not appropriate.

Thanks mate :wink: you got a pm.

First I'm going to take it out and test this beauty. The cranks with an improvised BB (dura ace :? ) either will work or fail!

Unfortunately I could ride only 5km with dura ace BB. :(
The chainline was wrong and there is not enough clearance for the bolts of cranks. Now I'm waiting on right BB made by bullseye.

..but one thing I can say, it rides excellent. :wink:

Even when the chips are down you still take excellent photos

I'm sure you'll sort the BB out

Really? I know lighting is very important but with a cheap point and shoot camera? I'm always disappointed with my photos.
