Really interesting build but those calipers are silly money (208$) each.

Did you not notice that all the other bits are silly money too!

slow progress past few weeks, new cassette and front mech on order.

meanwhile these Grab-On MTN-1 grips arrived, there's a little more going on than meets the eye as they were available from Mombat years ago, made in the original density foam on special order by Jeff Archer (RIP)

Happy New Year folks!

Had some minor setbacks last couple of weeks, my front mech package is still in limbo, may have to consider that one as lost :evil:

The DKG clamp i received was the wrong colour so that had to be send back and forth.. :facepalm:

However with 2 weeks added delays the Klampers are now here and so is the spare Ibis headbadge. Awesome to see Paul Components getting the order out during the backlash of the fires and nice eco friendly packaging!

Hoping to get this thing 'flying' in a couple of months.
