Amazing job Gio - I've enjoyed following this one. That colour is just SO right :-)

Fracking hell, that's retro bike viagra.

Shit, it's even the same colour (so I'm led to believe)

Lovely bike and superb subtle component choice. The builders build.

Great work as always Gio 8) Well worth all that time spent deliberating over the colour and tremendous work by Argos as always. I think it always makes the build a little more special/interesting when you can involve the original builder to some degree too :)

Great parts choice throughout and I look forward to the ride report.

Is it the resting position of the roller on the cam that you need a bit of info on? These should see you right as they came from Mr C himself :) Personally I've found that when they're set up properly, rollercams have fantastic modulation and stopping power.

Brilliant thank you mate. They will be very useful.

I was told by a very helpful member that if I move the rollers to the inside position it should sort the problem out. I would never had known that :facepalm:

I'll try and tweak them today/tomorrow and see if it sorts it out.
