A pretty short man! :lol:

Thanks for the feedback everyone :D
The tensioner was a bit of a last minute decision - not sure myself if it works or whether it's a little bit too much...

Nic - I tested the Amp shock and liked the look of the Risse better. It also needs some new oil I think. I'll service it and see - love the ti spring!

Rockimtn - Not sure what to do with the 18" frame. SS, wall-hanger, sell?

Cheers Archangel, it's just across the Baltic Sea... :wink:

Found a phone pic of an earlier pre-drilled cable stops build with the Amp shock. Hmmm... maybe it suits the build better?

(I'm another one of those kitchen builders! :wink: :lol: )
