Looks like a fine basis for a project - neo-retro would finish it well 8)

Nice Spinergy's, I fancy some for my Yeti Project. Did you import them from the states or buy them in the UK?

Here are some updated pics, due to lack of components at the moment and not wanting to strip down one of my other rides I decided to take the single speed route for now. I may go to gears at a later date, I just wanted to get this Pace built up asap so I could ride it. :lol:
All the components used were items I had going spare - some of which I was due to sell before I managed to aqquire this frame. I am glad I kept hold of these bits. :D

I had to bleed the hopes as the front was sticking a little and the rear was spongy. I have not fed the rear hose through the correct routing inside the top tube as I have been told it is a pain to do. I would have had to split the rear caliper from the hose to feed it through anyway.
I will get round to this soon I hope.

I am very happy with the build and it rides great, the single speed ratio is 34 / 16 at the mo.

The bike with pedals weighs 19.7 lb. 8)

That looks nails 8) any ideas on the weight? I'm guessing the string is to tether it down?

Very nice, how does it ride?

I have some carbon tape for the top tube if you want it mate.

Nice Titanium 31’s too 8)
