And so, it begins.

Having bought my SSUK entry (I think?) I now need something suitable to ride. Ive had SSs on and off for about 8 years, but nothing at the minute - this was the only frame-without-a-destiny I had, and being light and stiff I figured it would be suitable.

Spec is going to be a fanboy-bothering mixture of old and new, parts will be picked based on a complex equation of cost vs loveliness that I do in my head, with the odd late-night drunken ebay bid goodie chucked in for good measure.

Obviously it needs to be finished for the 6th June, so we'll see how that goes (projected bike crap budget for the next two months = £0).



Frame is super, super light, so I dont think a build of around 23 lbs is out of the question... dont want it too light though as I lack finesse and will probably knacker something.

Nice bike!

I really like the lemon-ano-colored Z2. Looks great with the blue bike. The bike looks to be in good shape.
