I had one of them BITD and never really lavished the love and attention on it that you obviously have...makes me sad that I got rid of it :(. The saddle and ring really set off the frame colour well, it's looking very cool indeed.

Cheers all :) its a Syncros outer ring :wink:

I'd fit a better seatpost if I could fine a decent one in 26.8mm :shock: just can't find one :?

Superb work Steve, in your usual good taste. I like everything except the big ring and the up-turned bars. Inspired saddle choice too, I wouldn't have thought of that, I must confess.

If finding 'just the right part' was easy, then this game would be boring :wink:
