    I'll try dropping it a little on the front, the whole bike feels a little sluggish at low speed but the smoothness is great. Every road on my commute feels like brand new tarmac.

    Yup 32c Cypres, what would you recommend? I'm on 70psi at the moment, didn't want to risk a pinch flat as my current hand pump is rubbish. Small floor pump will be on the xmas list...

    That is a 0 degree stem on it, 45mm of spacers under and a bunch on top that will be gone when I make the final cut to to the steerer this weekend.

    I didn't take taking nice photos of the finished bike, I went for a ride to the Isle of Grain and took this shit one instead.

    First impressions are:

    • it's smooth, super super smooth, almost all road surfaces feel like brand new pristine tarmac
    • I love the retroshift levers, crisp, straight forward shifting and not as hard to get the right hand position as I was expecting
    • it's heavy, very heavy, not that noticeable when riding but lifting/going up and down stairs is a bit of an effort
    • the PDW mudguards are great, kept me dry and no rattling at all (even on a small offroad section
    • I'm not sure how long the Grand Bois tyres will stay on, they are really hard to get seated (although looking at the rim this could be because it's tubeless compatible?) and I got x2 punctures, one on a gravelly path and one for an unknown reason as I stepped through the front gate to my house

    The last bits arrived in the week and I finally got round to finishing it. Proper photos to come tomorrow.

    @Sergeant_Pluck - I got PDW mudguards and used a spacer to move it away from the front disc caliper. I was mounting it to the rack rather than the fork mount so it didn't need much to get the mudguard mount out of the way.

    Wheels have been ordered as have PDW 45mm mudguards, fingers crossed I'll spend Saturday putting the last pieces together.

    Monorail vs Dip Dye has been scheduled for Mitch on Thursday, 8pm. Snoops/Badger have suggested this won't mess with NE pick up. If it's a problem for anyone please let us know.
