Haha yeah, not that tall.. Have put the post in without a measure as yet.. Need to get pedals chain etc. before I start sorting riding position..

Cheers John & stu, can't wait to get it finished.. Bringing it to the UK in March for storage until I return permanently later in the year.. It will be united with Jez's Disk Drive I just purchased :D

Lovely day in Sydney yesterday [23C!] and Summer was definately in the air.. Anyways, thought I'd roll the Bont out for a nice SunSet Photo Shoot 8)

Chekkit..

Need to sort a stem out tho.. At the moment a ZeroDegree Ringle is a bit low and feels a bit Djamolidine Abdoujaparov.. I think I need a TenDegree rise.. What did the Race come with as OEM?


Depending on the age probably a Salsa Pro Moto or a steel Bontrager jobbie :D

Hahaha hey Rich mate, I need to Fosbury Flop to get on the damn thing..

Disc drive will have to wait until I get back to the UK in March as it's being delivered to my Mum's.. But the Bont's going back then too so the two shall be united..

Titanium XTR 11-30 8 speed block turned up this morning from Chain Reaction Cycles :D

How's the Pace going mate, any photos?
