It's a 1997 frame, but the spec isn't :oops:

I liked the ride of the 18" YBB I had previously, but it was too large :roll: So now a 17" recently acquired with the help of a fellow enthusiast in the States :)

Plan was to build it up quite light. All parts weighed before assembly

A few pics, sorry, not great quality though.

Awesome! I had a VR6 too.

The gold bits on your drivetrain are a nice touch. :thumbup:

Cheers!

Maybe some lighter saddle and inner tubes??? You can save at around 220 grams in easy way. Of course comfort and durability suffer if you do so.
Say SLR and Supersonic tubes.
