Very very nice, and if the FRM frame is anything like the components it will be a quality bit of kit..:) :cool: :cool:

You need some FRM CU-evo cranks and a web stem and a frm set of wheels.. ;)

Oh! did I mention I have a FRM Web stem.. as a spare should you need it :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

thank you Si, i already have some interesting stems (a zooka and a newer fsa).
I don't really know how to proceed with it. Maybe doing a project with new components, carbon and so or with more retro (cantis, 8s, m900)...

I would personally use as much FRM stuff as you can lay your hands on, its very very nice stuff, very well made and superlight, the wheelsets were amazing.

There brakes I cant comment on, but I would not be using any shimano on such a beautiful frame.. ;)

As you can see, throw some things, put on some good old anodized stuff, more in blue ;)

Great 2x9 conversion from ritchey (great stuff!), used on blue turbine, sram 980 cassette (11-34) and solid M900 :)
