Pictures up dated and stickers applied, needs a different Fork in matching colours really, rides like a dream and sub 25 pounds nicely too, a lighter fork would push it below 24.

Bought the frame off here and took it to Bob Jacksons after a bit of deep thinking abd a fair bit of hard parts sourcing! Wasn#t a cheap option though :wink:

Bob Jacksons stripped the frame, re routed all cables, added hoze guides and removed canti bosses then added a disc tab, brace and re coat, so pretty much a new bike with old skool geometry.

By any chance did the frame have a small dent in the TT and was the lower botlle cage boss missing on the seatube? Was it white when you got it?

No sorry it was blue, badly scuffed original paint and no dents or bottle cage boss damage, underneath it was mint.
