Thanks!

I`m starting to think if I will want to take it out when its done!?!? :lol:

Anybody know if using Nitromoors on the fork will do anything to the magnesium?

Just received my front XTR M950 hub so next up I`ll be needing some rims!

Anyone have any suggestions on which to get, or does anyone have some going spare (read cheap too)

Syncros stem may be up for sale too.

Thanks! I will be watching yours closely as you Marin build is awesome, loving the Ti-trickery and attention to detail.

And I`ll keep you in mind for the stem if it goes, cant find the bar I want so I`m going for a Fred-Salmon setup for now.

Yes they are lol, went for the 100mm ones.

I`m unsure on the frame size? it measures 18.5" C to C and 20" C to T

Bike pedia lists 14 16 18 20 so I recon its a 18" but someone please correct me!

Ah, the pennies dropped ... If you bought one of those off here then they were larger than 1" and I think my vectors are 1" as they had a shim on the steerer, don't think your stem is much use to me :(

My frame is defo an 18" (had a sticker on it) and mesures 18.5" c to c. Now I just want to see an 18 on it's wheels, I have asked the other builder to confirm what size his is :-)

I have searched my computer and phone to see if I have a pic of mine with wheels on before it was stripped down but I must have deleted it!

When my bars come I`ll whip the wheels off my Univega and mock it up for ya bud.

What size is shovelons`frame????
