Had this frame a month or so, and finally decided to throw a few bits at it.

Its not finished to my ideal spec as I will eventually put canti's on it, but for the moment its borrowing the LX V's and levers from my Zaskar.

Will have it finished tomorrow, need to trim the steerer, fit cables, tensioner and chain.

Better pics to follow post build.

Very nice Jon, you going to ride that when we visit you?

What are the Quadra forks like? Considered a set myself for my Univega.

Took me ages to find a 26.8 Kore post for my Tequesta :lol:

Yeah. Popped to Arrow Cycles in Hykeham as I had an appointment there this morning. Grabbed a tensioner, some blue grips to match the decals and they also had a shufty to dig out 2 blue X-Lite ahead spacers.

Will hopefully finish it later today.

Looking fantastic. Been really enjoying looking at some Karakorams recently, yours does look like a fine example. Good work.
