I've picked up a NOS DX post which I will possibly use instead but would still like the grips. :D

Picked the frameset up from the Painters this afternoon and the wheels are built up :D. Here's a few pics before I get on with building it back up tomorrow.

I'm certainly pleased with it :D . The colour is much nicer in the flesh, doesn't quite come through in the pic. I'll try and get some better pics once its done though.

They are Timbuk2's but not NOS they're the re-issue ones from firstflight bikes. Fantastic tyres, used to have these on my 88 Raleigh Mirage back in the day and they were fitted to the Appalachian as standard according to the 89 catalogue.
