That is right nice. I'm after a steel 2nd bike, would love something like that but for the money I want to spend i'll probs end up with an Equilibrium if I can find one.

Finally put my 25mm tyre's on after sticking with my 23mm for years.. Changed my life.

Keep an eye on eBay man, this was 510 with a 105 groupset, so once I flog that it'll have been just over 300 all in, bargain.

Have you posted that somewhere else? I feel like I've seen it before

Someone posted a company who made these sexy ass brazed steel stems on here before. Anyone remember who they were?

Feather makes stems sometimes. He also pisses himself when he tries to fart after we've rode over a few mountains.

You may want to route the front hose inside the fork leg. It offers better strike protection and it's "proper" so you won't be harassed by the PinkBike crowd.

Let the Pink Bike ninnies say what they want. I route all cables outside the fork leg because the chances of landing on your hose at precisely the right spot to damage the hose are almost nothing. the chance that your zip tie will break and allow the hose to get hooked on a tire lug and sucked into the wheel, ripping the hose out of the brake caliper, are much higher. i will take my chances with the former and avoid the latter.
