The levers are superb - Dia Compe 290 - bought them off scant last week, had never seen anything quite like before, lovely looking things.

Well it is a Stumpjumper, a bit of wood (even if it is fake) seems fitting :)

Nah, they came in that colour, which obviously worked out quite well since they match the levers.

I think I miss the flexstem - the bike really felt quite different on Friday night to how I remembered, but still not sure if it's because I haven't ridden rigid in a couple of months, or if the length and angle of the syncros stem isn't quite what it should be. Further tweaking required I think.

Yeah the stem is pretty level, some rise would really make a big improvement IMHO that or some risers :twisted:

Strip and rebuild for the Drumlanrig weekend.

You pick the parts, and I'll hastily assemble them into something resembling a bicycle.
