Dunno about you, but I love the stage of the new build when most of the parts have finally turned up - sometimes after months of waiting - and you can finally anticipate what the thing will look like.

I've decided to call this moment 'the sketch up phase'....!

PS. Never got those FSXs!

Well I don't think they're very retro either.

I was just curious to see how a real light brake might work and I remain unconvinced.

Too light, for retro, man, too light!

:lol:

That looks really cool!

Remember seeing the FSR in one of the American bike show reports and it sported Marinovative brakes so I think the brakes match nicely, didn't Ben Capron who worked for Specialized design the brakes?

Cheers
Stu

Are those Box levers (on the Alibi)?
Try them with mrazeks. I dunno why you are not convinced... stopping power or new school?
I think they work great and They were in production in '98, so not too new...
