ongoing update shot.

Wheels/tyres are stolen from another bike, waiting for the BB to show up and unsure on whether to go for silver or black cables and chain. Also missing a tensioner, but unsure about which to plump for, may bite the bullet and get a Melvin, cos I like them, but they pricey! Wheels are in the lbs for a build up, going for a non-standard spoke pattern build too, cos I can.
