Completed the SS project today, picture's below! Not had a chance to have a good ride yet but it is very light and after spending ages to get the chain length right without it slipping I now have a creaky handle bar to sort tomorrow. Anyway let me know what you think and if I like this SS malarchy then my 95 Kilauea may well become available!

Trevor.

Good point Guybe, if I get on with it it may get some semi slicks for a superfast commute anyway!

Now as a super light commuter with semi slicks and some new LX v brakes (linkages had gone in the M739s). May get a different gear ratio as yet as 34/16 is too small on the flats although I have a big hill to tackle every commute!
