Update no.2
-----------

Decals, courtesy of Gil, applied ... really pleased with them and the colours, I think they match the pace forks well ... photos aren't the best but ...

Build details so far

- GT Xizang 1997 16"
- Pace RC36 Pro Class Limited
- Kooka Billet stem
- Pace RC30 bars
- Avid Arch Supreme brake levers
- XT 740 shifters
- ODI attack grips
- Xlite pro bar-ends
- Chris King headset
- Syncros ti post
- Flite Evolution 2 Carbon saddle
- Chris hubs on Mavic 517

That's a very nice Xizang and the decals are fantastic (I think I'm going to drop a line to Gil for the same decals for my Xizang :wink: )

Been a while since the last update ... but finally, the cranks are finished and on the bike ;-)

Topline cranks with custom anodised Middleburn cranks and self extracting bolt ... BB is a Ti White Industries ... pretty chuffed with how they've turned out ;-)
