Thanks for all your kind words :oops:

I still have to get another FIR rim or a pair of matching FIRs, I want these as the colours in the decals go with the frame decals and alloy spoke nipples.

I am also toying with changing the Onza HO cantis with something else as I think they are a bit clumpy for the smooth lines of the frame?

I did run Ti bars at first but went for black to contrast against the stem. I would like a Kolo bar and stem combo. I had one back in 1995 and it was unbelievebly light.

Now I am embarassed cheers!

What do you guys think of these brakes I got hold of on Ebay for £10 per pair?

Should I give them a go? Also have a look at the lizard on the bolt.

obviously I would be replacing everything for ti and I would still use the Chills as they just look so simple and neat.

Personally I would stick with the Onzas, but it's your choice that counts in these matters.
