Cheers everyone! :)
I am also getting pretty excited about the first long test ride. The cranks was a pair of force 22's i had lying around from another project. They are 175, and need a pair of 172,5 for this one. Or at least that was my conclusion from the first couple of test rides.
And brakes feel a tad squishy. Might have to bleed them again.
Gearing works phenomenal. The Rival rear mech shifts smooth and silent
A thru-axle upgrade is inevitable. But i am already over budget by miles on this thing, so it will have to wait.. :) If anyone has any good suggestions for a pair of quality QR skewers I'm all ears
