29.8mm seatpost in the end. Bloody odd size! Could squeeze a Thomson 30mm in there but it's tight. The roox was on eBay for £50 NOS. Happy about it all but I'm not sure about the white cable outers.....


I think its safe to say that the tubes are Reynolds 531 magnum, the forks are lovely too, same as on the Roberts Stratos.

Ran out of time for pics today. Need some new headset spanners before it gets ridden so will do a bit of final fettling over the weekend and more pics then.

I've been on just about enough to keep up with PM's and not much more the past few weeks and have missed a bunch of nice builds. Suffice to say I knew I'd regret not buying this one 8)
