Very nice.

I like the total lack of headset spacers - Looks much better... but nil points for some of the other details:

The chain should be on the big ring; the tire logos and valves aren't lined up; the dog-collar brake thing is upside down (seen from the rear) - Or is that necessary for the V-brake modificaiton?

Sorry to get all "STW".

:lol:

Apart from that, I love it. Nice job!

Cheers guys :D

DM, to answer a couple of points, yes the cable guide is on that way for v brakes, I line the tire logos up with the rim decals, and I'm no photographer, but I'll remember to put the chain on the big ring in future.

I just bought some forks for this, the steerer on the p2's was too short and I fancied something a bit posh... Apologies for the crappy iphone pics but I'm no photographer anyway.

I've also changed the pedals to some nice Odyssey Svelte that were my Dad's for the last 15+ years until I begged them off him!

What a lovely bike, but I prefer it with the straight P2's.
