Well worth the wait for the pix.

I really like that. My only worry would be the Ringle cage in that position.

Get some pictures posted in the Citrus Fruit thread here.....

very clean! (I think mine was that clean once in its life when I first built it - no chance now!!).

2 things not so keen on -

- big ring to big ring - argh ouch!
-the saddle - just doesn't look right for some reason.

Apart from that, great :D

Ive got a Carbon flite to go on, so should compliment the RC 36's fingers crossed, nd yeah im looking at the rear mech now, maybe need a new chain . . . . .was a right pain to set up, had to get a 42 tooth big ring in the end to get it to shift properly!

Those are 717's buddy :wink:

Looking lovely now, nice upgrades, I'm planning to keep my mate's and son's ones to the original LX spec though.

Does that roller thing on the rear mech actually make any difference to shifting? I know a lot of people liked having them with Gripshift BITD.
