hmm, now *slightly* concerned about checking chasing, will have to wait and I see I guess... LBS is pretty average, he wants £20 quid to fit the headset but I reckon thats steep for a job that doesn't take long.

Have all other tools though (for BB etc) so perhaps will be able to see later.

Didn't get stung on the customs tax though so thats a plus...

Build didn't go exactly as planned as my Pace RC36's didn't fit, thanks to that steerer tube :roll:

Had a change of heart and put the rigids on it for now, the canti bosses are removeable (alledgedly) but no amount of coaxing can get them off. Leaves the door open for making it properly retro and ditching the discs in the future though :lol:

New wheels are the next purchase (plus maybe some nice brakes with Kooka levers I have my eye on...) but will probably have to wait a while so Mrs Mc doesn't get too suspicious...

Haven't had much time to ride it properly but early impressions are very good!

Photo isn't great but in the sunlight (not that we've had much recently) the paintjob is sort of pearlescent... many thanks to my free LBS (tommylurve) for time, effort and tools!
