Looks nice

Good shout on the Bullseyes, they'd look good on that

Is that a set of Vs I spot up front?


Indeed, another quandry thrown up with the forks was V's or canti's. I dislike an unused hanger on a frame but using canti's up front would limit stem choice. For the moment I'll use the v's but I'm after a pauls stoplight to run on the rear. I'm hoping the canti with the v lever isn't too problematic, hopefully be able to detune the lever(?).

Got the mech today too, so I should be able to start plumbing this one one together.





Just saw the hangar off lol

How about custom stem made up with canti routing?



Could get a groovy..............:lol: :lol: if I find I like the bars I may well get something custom made up. I did ponder over it for a while, and decided to just get it going, I always faff about and get nowhere.

That is nice, red parts and cable outers really work.

Cranks look quite burly...I'd be tempted to sling a set of original Profiles on there

I'll try to get some better pics up, generally I reckon cooks are quite svelte and suit a steel frame. What profiles do you mean?
