That is nice. I had one briefly that I sourced from ebay. I might try and find one in the future.

Cheers,

I've been testing in off and on road, climb and down hilling for the last 4 week ends, feels great in handling, never feel like this when you hammered in aluminum, it's my first cromoly by the way.

This week end I'm participating in Up Hill Race Competition, a local championship series, absolutely use my Alpinestars instead of my modern 2009 Trek 9500 series , we'll see what happens... :D

Nice work getting all the bits together! Looks great. Think I have to print out one of the images and use as a motivation-tool :)
