Haven't done any updates on the progress for a while,so here's what's been going on since i last posted.......

I took the bike to the Royce UK factory,and there i had a new titanium bottom bracket(including titanium end bolts) fitted,so now the cooks cranks now could be fitted properly. Also whilst i was there i treated the chainset to some titanium chainring bolts....

Next up i've got the front end controls sorted-x-lite ti bars + new chicken stix,x-ray gripshift...

Just need the last few bits now and hopefully get time to put it together over xmas........
