Current project...

24Seven Crosser.

Really good find off eBay. £80 including a Diabolous headset!

So far, it's been stripped (Nitromors, before giving in to sand-blasting!) and powder coated in white. I was a tad apprehensive about the chipping tendencies of powder coating - but it's been lacquered and feels as tough as nails.

Got the cranks with an X-Face bb. The thing was feeling a tad rough - amazing all round bb, but the ease of service and replacement parts for the the Hollowtech 2 forced me to buy one in red. Obviously not ridden it yet, but it feels like £65 worth of bb should feel. Pricey purchase - but couldn't resist it!

Will add more pictures as the build comes along, but here's how it's looking so far...
