Everything seems to work fine just the wheels need a bit of truing up apart from that it's mint :)

My idea with this build was to lighten the bike up colour wise so the frame would stand out, in original spec the bike was very dark with black rims, u-brakes,chainset the brake levers etc. Now it has a lovely mix of black and silver which in my eyes makes the bike really look good.
With the green one the dark colours work much better, it'll look much better when i get it into the bike stand and strip it down and clean everything up. Basically all i've done is take it out the box when it arrived and used it ever since.

Hope you like,now what should i build next :)
