Still waiting on a few bits.
THM crank on order from Starbike.
Waiting for the MCFK stem to finally get released.
As soon as the crank arrives I'll build it with a temporary stem.

I'm getting a bit impatient!

Finally I have received the crank set, spider, BB cups & seat post.
Just the elusive MCFK stem to go!

I am very pleased with the result.
A huge shout out to Dave at Pedalling Gear for all his help.

needs an MFCK seat clamp.
the one you want for a z5 is the 12mm high one. probably get you under 6kgs... just noticed the washers and caps still on the tire valves :unbelievable:

even lance says this is a no no https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqY3R7s9HwY

So it's a who's who of the current WW favourite parts but the overall look is dominated by the saddle position - do you really have femurs that short?

Feedback taken:
Checked the fit info & moved the seat back!
Valve caps & nuts dispensed with!
And sugarkane, you are right about the seat clamp, its on my list.
