After a very long wait (approximately 19 years... ;-) ) a Pro Floater in my size finally turns up via Germany! Going for a classic MBA review build, I guess...

Sweet - great colour.

Congrats - and after a 18 year wait I think you deserve a nice cold beer to celebrate.

Wow, the right colour for the right bike. That must be fun building up this bike.
Is the pressfit BB spindle something you can use for the specific crank you want?
