I bought it from Nick and gave it the green colour..
Crikey! It's well travelled then.
So it was yellow and single speed, then green and single speed, then a mock up that never quite hit the trail then in a box in Ian's garage and now the poor soul has ended up with me.
What colour was it before it was yellow?
Current mock up has it with USE silver seatpost, Charge Spoon saddle (not the brown one), Kore silver stem and black bars.
The seatpost and saddle are staying, but I'm now on the hunt for bars and stem. Typically, there was a set of USE Atom carbon bars on the bay last week, and I did not buy them.
Not sure about the stem, I have an I-Beam here, but it's not quite right. The Kore stem looks OK, possibly a bit chunky, Syncros... a bit formulaic so I'll have to look around and see what takes my fancy.
Wheels are Campag Kappa rims in grey on Shimano 105 silver hubs. A slightly strange combination that work extremely well.
Shifters will be Gripshift Attack 9 x 3, f & R mechs M900, unless I can find an M910 long cage rear mech, although the 900 copes with 9 speed pretty well, provided the chain length is spot on.
Brakes will be Cane Creek Direct Curve (either 3 or 5 whichever looks better) levers will be Avid SD, unless I bump into some M739 XT levers, which I think look really smart.
Tyres at present are Schwalbe Nobby Nic's, which I'm giving another try, although the last time I rode on them, I ended up with a dislocated collar bone.
