:) Thanks ,I liked the pictures.. :)

I will take some more when the new wheels get here, :) wanted to keep this one as bling free and clean as possible :) I have changed build three times on this already prior to settling on this build.. :)

There will be a few changes, but not many,.. :)

Looks super clean Si. Nice build too. All I would suggest is to go for something like a smoke/dart combo and a matched set of hubs.

Will have to sort my old 'dale one of these days :?

Will be spot on then :D

Assume it has the 1 1/4" headtube? Is the M800 not "the beast of the east" with the special geometry?
