no cable stop/hanger (or noodle) to run cantis on the front.

the bolt-on hangers are not large enough. the quill has 31.8mm diameter.

:o What a fab bike..... 8)

By the way.....if u ever get a divorce, then i'll marry u.....and i'd quite like a Funk titanium or something like that please......i'll get booked in for the op!! :lol: :lol:

Why oh why does my wife have absolutely no interest in gorgeous bikes!?!?!? :roll: I've told her i'll build her a beautiful bike someday, but she really couldn't give a toss..... Need to really get her into the biking thing in a serious way first....but...err, not while she's pregnant with twins i guess.........oh dear, my cycling days could be getting rather fewer very soon... :cry:

Anyhoo, lovely build......lucky chap and chapess!! :wink:

Had too look a while to the grips and must say, yes they do fit the bike.
