Ha - Really is isn't it!

Total pain to set up mind you, but got it working now. Got a few ideas to get it set-up a lot better, but i'll run in the system first.

One of the things i'm most pleased about is the Mavic QR's. Great design while maintaining a true and offset QR cam function.

Cheers buddy!

Lovely looking pice of kit there, with a class build.

Not sure if it's just me or an optical illusion but the forks look like they are coming back the way?
could the crown be back to front? :?

:shock: 8) 8) I'm really feeling the love for the pace's at the moment....
Stunning build, fantastic spec, and (believe it or not) particularly loving the forks for some reason....

WRA cranks rule, btw... :wink: :)

Ah-ha: MacRetro buddies coming to the fore.

Cheers for the head up aboot the forks. Think theyre fine but i'll strip the the morn and check.

Had a set before but many moons ago.

I'm thinking of changing them at some point for RC 30 black legs, or getting a set of leg made. Got a pal with some I can copy. Nae sure yet.

I might NTD them next week as i'll be back at work.

Cheers guys, pretty happy with the bulid.
