rules were made to be broken, plans were made to be altered.
swaqpped the headset for the lovely nos xt offering. slid the equally sweet judy xc's in and began assembling. b*gger. the steerer is too short by about 5mm.
put the original headset back in and then installed the judy sl's. stand back in awe that the yellow compliments the blue. sort of. nearly.
treated the brake arme so a very very quick polish and some fresh pads and away for a quick spin.
first impressions, brakes seem ok, forks are better than the old but still nowhere up to modern standards. tyres need air.
yesterday i lent the bike to my mate for a bimble round clumber park. i got some comedy pics of him. he's about 6'3 maybe 6'4 on a 16" kona. he looks like he's riding a kids bike!
