    So after giving up on having Rourkes do some work on my Equilibrium 853, getting frustrated waiting for a dockers strike on the west coast of the U S to end, meaning I didn't get a Soma Wolverine, I opted for a 2014 Croix de fer frameset, for £399.99, only to be told they had all gone in my size. FFS!!!!
    Recieved an email the day after that news, to be told I could have a 2015 model for the same price. It arrived today. I am very happy with my choice. I'm getting rid of the carbon fork, to scobes of this parish, and replacing it with a Surly Straggler fork.
    So build list:
    2015 Genesis Croix de fer frame
    Surly Straggler fork
    Mavic A719 to XT centrelock disc hubs
    Sram Rival 50/34 cranks
    Shimano 105 2x10 derailleurs
    Shimano Dura Ace bar end shifters
    Trp spyre disc brakes
    Shimano Slx rotors
    Tektro levers
    Salsa Cowbell 3 bars
    Thomson 0° 90mm X4 stem
    Lizard skins 3.2mm bartape
    Kinesis seatpost
    Sdg Bel Air saddle
    Hope headset
    Hope seat collar
    Vittoria Randonneur pro 35mm tyres
    11-28 cassette
    compressionless cables.
    It's off to have the steerer cut and headset fitted tomorrow. Build and photos to come over the weekend.
    New bike to build up, kids and good lady out all Saturday, so tunes plenty of brews. Happy days.
