Better keep an eye on that crankset for when it spontaneously explodes.

How are you going to marry up mineral oil levers and dot fluid calipers?

It’s actually ready, just finishing some custom pads for the handlebar...will ride for some time to double check everything and then finally some pics. Broke my collarbone on December 31st, so I can’t ride for now anyways.
