Right, I've finished playing... Have disassembled everything & weighed the last parts.

Did you decide what you want to do with the wheel graphics? Dark label ones would definitely look better in my opinion.

Frame is gorgeous by the way. I have a C50 and would love a C59 one day.

I completely forgot about the decals. That said, the white saddle & bar tape would go nicely with the white decals & white accents on the frame.

I'm also going to need to make a clamp for the stem... Ought not be too much of a problem, I just need to make the time to manufacture it.

Well, I've been over to Royce engineering (of hub & bottom bracket fame) & asked Cliff to make me a clamp to fit. That might take a while so I'm going to use the deda zero 100 stem (also 120mm) in the meantime.

Whilst I wait for the clamp to be made for the stem, I couldnt resist putting on the name sticker I got for my birthday, last Sunday.

After much fettling....

Obviously, the steerer needs cutting but overall, I'm happy.

Feel free to critique (not criticise)!
