Hi guys.
I thought i would post my story/bike after much deliberation as you guys can be quite hard, lol !! Plus ive never seen one on WW before. Around 14 months ago I splashed out and bought an Urgestalt, then within 2 months after changing saddles I realised the seat post was on a twist as the saddle used to point to the left by 15mm.( I did post pics on here)I wasn't the only one with this problem so a new frame was ordered as a warranty issue. So I've been told Lightweight have redesigned the seat post clamp in side the frame. Don't know if that is true. After waiting 12 agonising months my new frame arrived. The Bike is now rebuilt and ready to ride. While waiting I couldn't help but spend more money on some new parts and Obies.
Will try and take some pics tomorrow and post them soon along with a full build list with weights.
I'm crap with technology and need the help from her in doors, so please bear with me.
Cheers

Forgive me but is your Fiberlyte large chain ring on backwards?

Hey, KCookie, Arfer01 is right... You need to flip the large chainring. The lifting pins need to face inward for the shifting to work properly! Well spotted, Arfer01.

The bloody LBS owner put the bike together. I'll give it a go tomorrow but not very confident as I've never worked on a bike before. Thanks all for letting me know as I wouldn't have a clue. You expect the bike to be built properly from a shop. So I just undo the bolts slide it off the crank and flip it over. Once flipped do I need to line anything in particular, obviously the holes I know. !!!

1) Sweet ride, have fun with it
2) Please learn how to maintain it! You will be amazed at how easy most maintenance is, be able to sort yourself out on the road when something goes wrong, and earn some street cred from everyone else, and be able to call "bullshit" on your LBS. Read enough posts around here and you'll see why what happens behind the wall at the LSB is very often times *not* the right way of doing something.

Cheers!
