Nice orange, have you got a reference for it?

Only the pre spayed tube Nick at the coaters showed me, but I am pretty sure is is RAL2004.

Some of the cabling is now done, rear mech and rear brake are done, but the front mech needs a new inner.

Bar tape ordered.. orange naturally.

My word that bar tape is bright.

Had to fit a new front mech cable... what a struggle that was. Anyway, done now, so things can progress.

Rule #8 should be applied here, in my opinion.

Black, black, black...

Looks well balanced in terms of componentry and colour...
...I really like this build.

Have you thought about black handlebar tape?

Yes.

And dismissed the idea as heresy.

Orange Fizik tape freshly wrapped, photos as soon as I have finished seeding the lawn... not a euphemism, I really am working on the lawn.

Done.

Bar tape is Fizik Classic. I did get some Deda Fluor range, but it made the frame look dull... and was a bit OTT.

Sorry about the pedals, I have a black set here somewhere. I'll ride it this week then change them when I find them.

I will also tweak the saddle and bars to get my position correct, but for now.....

Just noticed that the brake pads need a tweek too.

Very smart, a contender for October’s RBotM 80’s & 90’s theme?

Could be, I think it's a 90's frame.
