Next problem to overcome...

The original Ti threaded steerer is 1" 1/4 but the frame is 1" 1/8, so I'll have replace it with a threadless one and use a ⌀31.8>⌀28.6 shim in order for it to work with the aheadset. How risky is this? I guess the alternative is to customer make a steerer? Not sure what length I'll need as I'm missing some parts in order to calculate the stack height (bottom race, stem & possibly some spacers) but in the meantime do I go for a red, silver or black stem (I think the latter)?

Should be ok with a shim. Pace did it with plenty of their forks.

Black stem would look good.
Noticed the seatpost is red, is that staying? Black with red mounting hardware would look good (if the parts are available)

I thought so too.

For the moment the seatpost is staying but if it dominates the blue it might go; we'll see.
