Cheers Bart :lol:
Yep I finally got wwwScott back from the paint shop . The photo doesn't do it justice though . It's more lime green than it looks . Will start to build it tomorrow night and get some pics as I do . Unfortunately , I don't have access to a computer with a memory card slot at work :facepalm: so will have to update the build at the weekend only . Any new builds going on in your shed mate ?

Hi Mr U ,
Well , how long have you got ? Tried to put headset in, the cups were persuaded eventually . Tried to put back wheel in but the drop out was too small ! Work that one out ? Standard Shimano axle . Filed it out so it fitted . Then found out that seat post at 27.2 is to big . Need a 26.0 mm . Anyone out there have a silver Ritchey one ? Mike :roll:
