make those changes STAT. 6700 would be good. the dark grey might be best in your case.
great colour!

I agree with the change to dark grey.
In which case, the Chris King headset (which is overrated anyway... it's a headset!) needs to go. You can either get a dark grey CK headset again or one from another brand.

I have an Extralite headset sitting around although debating due to durability for CX so I may go with the darker Chris King and use the silver Chris King on my Surly commuter (needs a new headset anyways)

Currently looking into pedals & debating on XTR M980's or Crank Brothers Candy 3's
Anyone here ever try out the Candy 3's ?

Thanks !

Personally I would go for the black 105 groupset. I think it would look greet with the frame.

Looks good!

6600 is one of the best shifting group sets I've ever used. Silly to "upgrade" from that on a heavy steel CX bike.

XTR pedals are going to be more secure, reliable and durable than crank bros.

If you're racing this, I'd go 46/36 on the cranks. The Praxis rings are great. That's what I'm using on my CX bike.

I agree with you Jmilirion, 6600 is nice and smooth although the switch over to a new group+fork+saddle (big upgrades that I can think of) would bring the numbers down on this steel rig and have the other little component changes afterwards & I can transfer this stuff over to my commuter which would be a good switch :thumbup:

Getting most of the stuff next week and will post updates soon.
