V.nice. great colour choice, I was thinking of doing the same, with Ti frame and CK pink parts, or would that be a bit gay!
I'm might be wrong hear, bit does that front mech look to high, I thought the cage was to clear the outer ring teeth +/- 2mm,
cheers great build alan.

Jez, I not on a mission to nit pick, but also seen another 'fault'!
was looking at the shifter cable, on the down tube, crank side, I would have threaded that around the headtube coming into the stop at a cleaner angle.
I'll post you a pic of my next build and you can pull that apart!!
Taking cover, Alan.

Well spotted - I was in such a rush to get the forks back on I didnt notice the rear mech cable wrapping wrong way round the headtube. I'll fix that now.

And the mech issue - yes it is too high and that needs moving down - was running a 48 tooth ring on some xtr cranks so just need to recompensate for compact drive.

Well spotted you eagle eyed critics. :D

PLEASE tell me that sometimes that bike has big manly knobbly tyres fitted and gets taken for a thrash round a muddy field.
