Bought the frame a couple of months ago before i went on back home to Oz on holiday and have now finally got round to building it up...
Managed to get some original 'touch-up' paint and sorted out the chips/scratches. Then finished with a final paint T-cutting and helitape covering session.
Didn't have any press fitting tools, so the Hope head set and Truvativ BB were gently fitted with a wood block and mallet! :lol:
Went in fine... :wink:
Used the Hope AM4/ZTR Flow wheel-set, Hope stem and RockShox Reverb post from my old Marin hardtail and then added all the rest of the parts I had stock piled during my Scott Ransom build, like the Crankset, Saddle, Jag-wiring, pedals, stem spacers etc etc....
I had alot of the parts stashed away so the build has only cost me around £1100 with the used frame, new fork, new brakes and new shifters etc...

I've always loved that colour version of the 2010 Spicy and longed for one for ages...
And it's come up real nice after all the 'touch-up' painting and t-cutting and now i'm desperate for this crappy weather to lay off so i can test it out... :cry:
