If you do not like the blue in your built (I'm afraid I agree with others)...
I bought an EFC a few weeks ago, but I think the red and yellow in the fork doesn't fit with the rest of the bike, so...
....I decided to go for an M4. One is on it's way to my home as we speak.
The 'new' M4 is almost NOS. At least that was stated in the ad. If I receive it, I take a look and see how I like it. I think it needs an overhauling. I was thinking about a Wings spring/damper set so it's not to springy.
The M4 has a little less bleu in it. And a bit bleu is OK, since the frame isn't white as it looks like in the pic's. It's actually ice bleu..
Next thing are the rims. I have contact with a fellow RB'er about some silver Sun 0 degree rims. These are 1996. The rest of the bike is practically all 1995/1996.
The NOS Joe brakes came in last week. OK, they are the wrong colour, but is gonna change to green (re-ano).
There's only one thing by than that needs to change and that might be the bar. Now the stem grips a Easton EC70. I like this bar, but don't know what year they came. Does anybody know ?
I take a look every once and a while for something else, but don't know what it might be, as it should be US-made (as the rest of the components). A Ritchey ProLite WCS is an option, but these are a bit risky with bar-ends (I have experienced BITD).
Maybe an other option you know about that's US-made and realy lightweight ?
Oh yeah... to be real correct: Is there anybody that can deliver some (lets say 64) Wheelsmith spokes in the right length ?
By the time I know if it's gonna be the Sun rims, I can post the lengths I need for the wheels..
BTW, thanx for the ideas about the fork. The M-sport might be an option, but I want to keep it high-end also..
I know, lots of things to keep in mind (US-made, '95/'96, high-end, color...)
