Nicely tuned parts, I especially like the tuned Selle Italia Tekno Flow.

The bike is now much more together, tyres are on the way, will go back to standard 9001 hoods for now while the carbon versions are more developed.

Knocked the bike over and took a piece out of the saddle DOH! Mixed up some resin and carbon to see if can make a repair, once cured will sand back and see how it turns out .

Hey, alas it is homage to the popular internet song the 'Trollolololol' song. With my friends and some other places on the net that is something you might jokeing'ly say if you did something silly your self or to someone else on purpose. My use'age was that i knew some of my buddies would say 'why the monkey would you have full carbon chain rings?!?!?' my response is 'read the chainrings my friend'. :). On a serious note they are lighter and still very usable but have less mileage then alloy but that is the cost of light weight.

The repair turned out just fine, structurely just fine but cosmetically it doesn't look as good as it did but it's only a small part, it could be alot worse however..

STILL not finished. All the parts are together looking like a bike, mechanically working for the most part but am resolving some B-tension issues with the rear mech.

after re cabling the bike and now having the bike fully internally sleeved as oppose to sections the rear shifting is still having big issues. Next step will be trouble shooting with a different mech
