I wish I'd never started - took me about 6hrs just to do one side! I'm yet to start on the other side...

Will take a pic sometime though - they do look good.

Lightweights back, new Tune Smartfoot cranks*, back for a stint on the Tune Speedneedle saddle and some sunshine to show off that purple...

God damn I love this bike...


*Disclaimer: I was going to get the EE Cycleworks cranks but I've been waiting for ages for a set of cranks to really 'finish' this bike and visually I'm just not sure the EEs would have looked right. I also couldn't be arsed to wait another 4 or 5 months! Sorry Craig...

They're not removed - these are special order 'black edition' Lightweight clinchers.

Slipped to page 4 - I must have settled on a setup...! :unbelievable:

Mostly, yes. The black KMC chain was noisy though (anyone know why? Nothing to do with the number of links or derailleur setup as a direct swap for a KMC with the same number of links was fine?), and I'm now trying a Tune Komm-Vor saddle:

Damn I love this bike... :D

Seriously Rich?
Moving to Sydney?

Well welcome to the sunny part of the world, where good riding is to be had all year around.
What precipitated such a "drastic" move?

Cheers
Vlad

Yes, seriously! My girlfriend is from Sydney originally and has been offered a job.

Is that where you are Vlad?
