Looking gooooood, if you want to get rid of your spare syncros cranks, I know someone who would be interested!
already in talks with someone who's interested in a parts swap. if that falls through i'll give u a PM.
also most of my builds are concluding so i'm thinking i'll be having a parts clearout soon.
Nice job, Frank! Those Bonty forks look great. I'd like to see it with the Syncros cranks and gold rings. Wink
What's the clamp-like device under your stem?
most likely it will end up with the first nicer set of Syncros cranks that has the black RF rings, but swapped with the gold Syncros rings, to continue the gold colour theme.
The RF stem is for threadless setup but uses an internal clamp that goes inside the steerer, kind of "quill" like. the lock ring you are referring to is used to load the headset. does that make sense?
if not, look here
