Like Kaiser, I am not a fan of Spins, but they look really good on your build!

Damnit people stop building such nice, interesting bikes... it has a direct reaction on the state of my wallet!

May just me my personal taste but I'd like to see some pedals & maybe a chain.

Ok, great build, mono-tone colours always go well with an alloy frame. Would look great with a Syncros Ch/set

The first bike I've ever seen Spins look tolerable on (not to say I wouldn't prefer more conventional wheels though)! I like Amps, and this looks like it's gonna be a great build. Good stuff! 8)

Yeah, Spins, too 'stealth' for a Retro build

LOL, a lot of people against the Spins here, personally I think they suit the AMP very well, I'm also pretty sure that Spins were in production in 92, so at the very least they are period correct. Does anybody know what years Spins were in production?

Syncros cranks sound like an excellent idea, I've only got a pair of bog standard Shimano jobs to go on it for the time being. But will go on the list of things to be replaced eventually.

Cheers,

TSC.
