thats looking nice :D , certainly the brakes are an improvement over the original alivios that the german & french forums took the pi$$ out of when you first built it up :lol: :D

so I guess you;re on the look out for a larger frame given that this 1s blatently too small for you? with that saddle to stem position change all your need is some tri bars :wink: :lol:


:lol: well done.

I would have gone with purple as the classic grellow colour scheme, but red still looks cool.
no real offense meant by the sizing b.t.w. you'd deffo be more comfortable on a ML over a M.

None taken, you'll have to do better to offend me scant ;)
The size is fine, the tt is plenty long enough. Guess thats one of the good things about being a bit taller, it's easier to find and ride a smaller frame rather than vice versa ;)

no intention of offending ever meant.. I used to post retro threads all the time on STW & have the pi$$ taken so was a refreshing change to have this site & be able to speak freely within an appropriate audience ;)

you'd still be better off on a ML tho ;)

The crosstop was out of neccessity. The fork steerer was too short to run a cable hanger. It had to be a ringle / king / pauls front end so crosstop it was

Thats a fantastic build, its obviously taken a great deal of patience to get all of those parts together but its clearly been worth it.

I look forward to seeing your next build.
