Looks very tidy indeed and the forks really compliment the frame nicely.

You might have a little difficulty with the chain falling off if you can't get it a bit tighter though.

I like it a lot, brakes are fine with me, DX is cool

But imho the silver stem you had at first looks way better than the black. Noticed the black has more rise though, and the ride prevails in the end. Still think it will look better wit a silver steel stem (of your preferred rise).

Enjoy!!

The Cinelli stem wasnt working for me wanted to go for that all black stealthy look... it was also creaking like mad :? The Art stem currently on it was £5 at CRC -seems nice quality.

My ideal stem would be a single pinch bolt salsa or the like in black 8) If I see one around I'll stick it on...

As for the brakes I was after a set of them Avid Ultimate Black Ops to complete that stealthy black look but these red'uns came up- and they picked me more than I picked them- Love em!

Enjoy!!
