A few more tweaks. I wanted to try a shorter stem so i found a nice looking relativly cheap Velo Orange 80mm one first ride with that tomorrow hopefully.

Also new decals courtesy of Gil at retrodecals. Crank and some custom size 1998 kona hei hei 325 titanium seatube decals for the forks. I know many wont like what I've done here but i felt the fork needed breaking up a bit and they tie in with the frame much better now in my opinion. Theyre on a 1998 kona and the fork is 325 grade titanium so close enough.

I like it all!

We have the same cranks now!

I'll be very curious on your stem, I am currently running a 100 and wouldn't mind going shorters
