I had orange cables on mine BITD cheapy things from LBS almost pink, had to be done mind.

Nice transformation so far :)

Do you have any idea how long BB needs to be BTW? I'll be using a Middleburn RS7 off a Santa Cruz FS.

not sure on the middleburns might be better asking in the chat section, 113 for me but mine are shimano cranks.

Did think orange cables but will stay with the black for the time being- need to take some nice pictures and tidy up this thread as the old girl is practically finished.

Nice.

So nearly bought one of these BITD but was talked into the Dave Yates when I went into Neil Waltons in Didsbury to place the order.
