    This is a great story already, I'm sure more will come to the surface over time.
    Team Stuttgart is my vote. Perfect shade of green with a splash of pink without being all pink as above.
    Can we do polls here? haha.

    ^ not a massive fan of Rotors personally... plus $$$ too much for me.

    Still waiting on the hubs to arrive. :( I'm hoping this week...

    Meanwhile.. did some customisation on the cranks. Mostly for aesthetic but shaved a bunch of weight too.
    Built a little jig and with a guide in the middle to carefully run a router against and finished up the straight edges with a jigsaw.

    Gonna try out this product from the gun shop called Aluminum Black to clean up the scratches on the spider and blacken out those logos while I'm at it!

    Look at these cockpits.
    Found on a local FB marketplace group.

    Just picked up the frame from the mechanics. Faced, threaded and fitted BB, headset races squared (they were way off) and steerer chopped.

    Ended up stripping the stem clamp and hitting it with some rattle can satin black enamel.
    If it doesn't hold up I can always order a replacement from Moots direct but looks great for now.

    A few small changes to plans as I've picked parts from local classifieds instead of the 'bay because the exchange rate sucks but very happy with my finds.
    The FSA cranks have the (rare?) machined alu solid spider which is rad but also a bit heavy, planning to drill out some the unneccesarsy bulk around bolts.

    Now just waiting on my Raketa hubs preorder to arrive and to purchase a chainring.
    I was hoping that a new 44rn release would be out by now so I guess a F5 Lattice ring it is instead I reckon. Cheaper anyway :)

    I haven't done the maths but this gonna be light.

    Exciting news about the house man.
    Those bars awesome.. and really wide!!?
    I'll probs do a little Blue Lug order if some stuff I'm after is restocked if you get fussy for the nitto spacer down the track.
    I reckon some gums will look sharp with the blue when you wear those Voyagers out.
