Finished pics :D :D

Had a couple of test rides and all is good 8) few snaggles to sort and have some upgrades planned for the future but it'll be riding as is for a while. As has gone before, all opinions welcome, good or bad. Overall I'm very pleased with the ways its turned out aesthetically as well as the way it rides so far :D :D Anyway some pics and as I say any comments appreciated.

what are those bars? look wide with plenty of sweep.

the midday sun is harsh to take photos in...perhaps some early morning or early evening photos to see more detail :wink:

An 8 speed Ultegra rear mech would gain you one more style point IMHO :D

its scotland , take whatever sun you can get :lol:

still not a fan of the forks and seeing the cranks now with the other parts im tempted to say leave them as is to match the black forks and assorted parts like the brakes . the white lettering although fading on the cranks ties into the frame/fork decals nicely too

if it were me id either be looking for forks to colour match to the frame and polish the cranks or leave as is

so thisl be the ssuk race bike for next year eh :P
