the next wee part arrived in the post today, so i went straight out after work and got it fitted! 8)

need to track down some nice 1 inch spacers and then i can cut down the steerer

classy bit of kit though, fancied something different rather than the obligatory Chris King!

Great looking campy headset mate and it really does suit that superb paint finish which you seem to be getting better and better pics of 8) ..

haha! thanks! 8)

popped the hubs in, just to get a feel for it, think i might go black rims with the Panaracer Magics, just need to find some nice 32 hole rims to suit!

and maybe a 10 or 15mm black spacer to tie in with the black insert on the headset........
