Lack of handlebars at the moment, or are you just going to 'use the force' :wink:

I've got a mammoth task ahead of me on this one as the last build of this bike was pretty much awesome, I just hope I can come close so I hope I can do it justice.

I shall race you, I think I'm picking the first of my hardtail frames up on Friday (provided it is back from the sprayers) and that'll be being built - new build though and not a retro one, although frame geometry is a bit (deliberately) 'old skool' so to speak.
