The least said about the cost of the Chris King spacers the better.

Luxury Item. 😬

Can anyone please advise of the correct headbadge ?

I’ve seen ones with and without the “Kona” wording.

Thanks

Matt

Brifters 951 including bar end shifter.

Has anyone any experience of using the bar end shifter. ??Looks a bit awkward. !!

Especially as I’m not planning on bar ends at the moment.

Have managed to secure an XTR Seatpost.

Choices - do I stick with the period correct Syncros - 30g lighter or do I go with the earlier XTR branded post which will go better with my chainset choice.

Tough problem to face. 😬😬

Thanks there. Does it really make any difference inline Seatpost. !?

All important geometry I guess. !?

As you said all important geometry I guess

note: one thing I noticed when I checked out you Marin Team Titanium was the saddle looks to be position way to much forward on the rails, Aesthetically it stands out.

Yeah, thanks. I think I’ve got my Marin dialled in now though, even with my weird shape.
