Ive ridden this nearly everyday since its been finished and am very happy with it(except the seat). Im thinking i will keep the drop bar set up, i quite like the way it rides. Except swap the bars for standard clamps and put the old stem on.
The cranks you see are gone, the drive side arm seized onto the bottom bracket and i was lucky to be able to unscrew the bb with a set of c-clip expander pliers (it was that loose after daily wd-40ing). theyve been replaced with a set of m-582 LX cranks + a blackspire ring.
Have also added a quick realase type diacompe straddle holder headset spacer thing for the front, really impressed with how it works.
My definite plans are:
strip and spray the frame + stem + seatpost, rebuild wheels(with new front hubs + spokes + rims + nipples), get new brakes, headset and most other parts:p
