OK, its done.

Took her out for a shake down ride last week, and despite snapping the chain with the third revolution of the cranks, she was sweet. The forks need a bit of stiffening up, and the bearings could probably do with replacing in the rear hub as it pulls a bit.

Oh, and no need for a tensioner - Bonus!

Too bright?:

Radial front:

Steering, and ace o' spade bar caps (sweeet!):

Image

Drivetrain:

Hand-polished, formerly purple Ti Salsa skewers, non drive-side radial rear:

Image

Rear Avid arch Supreme, Caramba roller (not enough room for a noodle!):

Image

Sit on my face (and tell me that you love me!):

I have a NOS pair of thinner, lighter, Spesh Team tyres for best use and am still waiting for a good deal on a Spesh Phenom Ti saddle as this Salsa one is a wee bit uncomfortable.
