Stripped down and ready for paint!
SACRELEDGE I hear you cry! But the paint was turd, the decals were messy and I couldn't bring myself to liking the blue.....although I miss it now!
2 hours + 1 Popeye arm = no decals and a serious forearm problem lol
Did some etch primer, then filler, then the final colour followed by copious amounts of t-cut .
And that's how it ended for a year or so. On-One carbon forks (950g), avid BB5 front disc with 185mm rotor, same cranks and pedals and shifter. DMR wingbar, LX cassette and XT rear mech, some lighter wheels, a planet x stem and some better pads for the rear brake.
Have been in touch with Gil about new decals but never got round to ordering, will have to touch base again soon.
My loosely termed 'weight weenie' - ahem - build....http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... p;t=274709
