    Finally got it all built up and went for a first ride. Will probably replace saddle and seatpost but other than that I’m super happy with it!

    Thanks very much for the suggestions!!

    Soooo been trying my best with the seatpost to no avail, went to the LBS eventually and unfortunately they had no luck either, but suggested a machine shop who could get it out so hopefully theyll be able to get it out this week.

    Finishing kit: I'm planning on sticking with the Ritchey cockpit that's on it atm to save a bit of cash (and I like the setup), and was planning to match the wheels with a carbon weave seatpost (provided the old gets pulled out!) Saddle wise I've an arione on my other bike which i find pretty comfy so that will be the last bit to find but I've got an old boardman saddle I could whack on in the meantime

    Ordered some stepped ferrules from SJS so coming together now so hopefully should be built up end of this week

    Next things to do:

    • Switch out the old miche crankset and bb for the new ultegra (might just go to LBS if theyre not too busy as I dont have any of the tools, then again might get the tools as theyll probably come in handy

    • Seatpost is stuck - have been a bit wary of damaging it but might try coke down the seattube trick? Any suggestions? Otherwise could be a job for LBS

    • Build up! Need to find some of the downtube cable stop converters (idk the correct name) to go on the downtube shifter studs and plastic cable router for under the bb

    • I'm really keen to use the internal routing for the rear brake cable but in the past have struggled to find any step down ferrules for the outers that would fit properly - any suggestions?

    Anyway hoping to have it built up next couple of weeks

    So as expected I have been terrible at updating this thread, but now am in possession of wheelset and groupset and almost ready to build it all up

    managed to find a decent deal on some Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbons which happily come without any of the massive decals, and I'm a sucker for some tanwalls so was convinced to get the vittorias by the guy in in the LBS, pic below
