Couple of update shots, however not sure if this will be final although I had hoped it would. RF cranks went to the DeKerf and so I went with a set of Syncros forged cranks with rings. However the chain is hopping the middle ring, so might be too worn to use. :cry:

Not sure what to do now:

I'm on a horrible nightshift with some really bouncey psychiatric patients in deepest Wiltshire ( Seen the cave trolls in Lord of the Rings? You get the picture. ) Your pictures of your fab bike have really cheered me up. I'm inspired for a ride now. Cheers mate!

:D thanks for the comment. glad that my project is has cheered up your day!

think i'll have to resort to using the NOS RF rings with the Syncros forged crank. can't have this bike performing sub par no matter how much i'd love to have the Syncros rings on it. :evil:

here's one for the album… *sigh*

Some more Ti bling arrived, in gold flavour… so I swapped out the rings to some new Race Face ones, as I didn't want any sketchy shifting going on.

As I'm fairly content with everything currently on this build, I thought I'd put together the spec list. Posted at the top of the thread. ;)
