All responses welcome -

Here's the Avocet I've gone for....


Cheers.

Yep that was the one, unfortunatley the boss caught me looking & doesn't understand the difference. excuse my ignorance but is the Ri plate on the saddle just the Avocet standard plate?

This was the one! viewtopic.php?f=2&t=372606&hilit=ridgeback+704xt
....shame the pictures are no longer there! Whoever ended up with it...let's see some pics!

I don't know much about the Avocet ( Other than it's a good saddle for this build!) I'm presuming that the plate could be modified to suit a bike it was specced on. I'm thinking Kona or Alpinestars ..... this was purchased from the US. I don't know to be honest.

Starting progress on the paint strip of the other builds so it'll be slow progress on the Ridgeback. There's not too much to do in all honesty - just pedals and decals.

Cheers.

Long overdue. Final finished pictures.... XT pedals and straps now on + Tange Prestige handlebar stickers from raidan73 ( Thanks again! :wink: )

Hopefully showing the colour a bit better too...

1 of 4 projects done. Must get my finger out with the rest, but as usual...other stuff takes over.

Pic 2 shows the rim decals and tyre valves in correct placement! :roll: :lol: .... lets hope the picture come out in the correct orientation this time!!

Enjoy....

Looks amazing, so understated but the whole packaged worked so well especially with those forks. Tried both bitd and imo these ride better than a DOGS BOLX :wink:
