Here we go!

Any thoughts on frame protection? I have thin protection tape and thought about cutting up a chainstay protection strip, or should I buy a specific thicker chainstay sticker kit? Also I'm considering if I should put a tape strip under the down tube? Maybe that is not necessary... Ideas appreciated..

Can anyone offer up suggestions for bar plugs? I'm wrapping the Ax bras in Busyman leather tape and was thinking Carbonice or Tune plugs. I'm not sure if the Carbonice are for bar tape or just mountain bike bars. All ideas appreciated!

Look forward to seeing those, shame your not in Adelaide, would love to have seen it in person. Was debating to get one but ended up with an Urgestalt.

So the big job now is measuring up all my geometry from the old bike and setting this up as close as I can. Then I'll do the first steerer tube cut and mount the levers and brake cables. I'm without cranks though.... :cry: The Dzero's are still not in stock so haven't been shipped...

Thanks! I did order some busyman cnc plugs but I imagine they will be "heavy"! So the fair wheel could be the go. I'll speak to you next week after the busyman's arrive.

Bikes coming along nicely, looks awesome with the matching parts. How long until you will receive the crank.? Are you keeping a log of all the weights, what do you think the total weight will be. ?
