White always makes for a super clean build.

Very nice.

Like the look of those tyres - are they a summer tyre?

Cheers buddy :D

Yeah they're billed as a summer marathon tyre for various terrains. Quite narrow for a 2.1 so might cut through the gloop too. Very light as well. Haven't tried them yet though.

Stunning job, certainly worth all the hard work you've done. 8)

I keep coming back to this to look at the photo's - I think it will be an awesome build.

What details do you have on those forks?

Just received some NOS Chris King parts for the no logo headset 8) but $$$ :roll:. Mailed Chris King direct and they managed to find some parts for the old type headset, pretty cool but maybe OTT for this build.
