Love it - but have to agree with the brake boosters - less is more here I think and the frame forks son't need 'em either.

Also like the Sachs front mech - you don't see much of that stuff on here. 8)

Also being totally picky (Sorry - only cause the bike looks so good) I think the saddle angle needs fixing it looks tipped forward a bit too much to me. EDIT: Just looked at it again - maybe its just the in-line post? - what do others think?

Def BOTM material :D

Anodised Ringle cages finally returned from CCA this morning, so I thought I would chuck em on :wink: (got the L-Pieces done too). Also I have bowed to public demand, and taken a few shots with the boosters removed. PACE chainsuck plate also came back with the cages, so have fitted that along with the Rollamajig (that bead is purple, just looks pink in the pics :oops:) to tidy the cable loop.
Officially 100% finished, unless some Ti-Dye spokes come along. Question is, I don't know if I actually want to ride it now :oops: :) .Sorry about the poor light for the photos.

Cheers...Nick
