Cheers for the close ups on the guides. Guides look good but not a fan of the zip ties. I've ordered some of the original type guides but in black (a la Cannondale M series) and will be hawking them around some of the local manufacturers to see about having a batch made in the correct grey. Won't be cheep and its a little silly and all that but you know what its like when you set off down that road, all gets a little obsessive......

Just been looking at the pics again- you've got an awesome looking Pace there Pete. Really am impressed.

Si
