Sabbath Mondays Child Build

I wasn't looking for a new bike but when i saw the Mondays Child frame and forks in the classifieds I decided that I needed a bit of Ti. The place where I picked it up from was only about 20mins away from Sabbath's workshop so I popped in and left it with them for a brush up and new decals. I probably could have had a bash myself but it wasn't expensive and they did a lovely job. It came back looking like new. 

Anyhoo, I've built it up with an 11 speed Campag groupset and it's almost complete. Got a few bits and bobs to sort out and hopefully it'll be complete for next weekend. Will post some decent photos when it's done.

    Ta :)

    Finally finished the bike and I'm very happy with the way it's turned out. It's lovely to ride; Plenty stiff enough for me but very comfortable at the same time. Love it!

    I know, it would be nice. The Spesh stem has adjustable shims though allowing a -2 degree drop, which gives the perfect geo to match a bike fit I had done. Any lower and my back starts to feel it. I didn't really want to remove a spacer and use a flipped stem to achieve the same position.

    Lovely frame, and I like the green.
    What do you make of the Cosmics? I had an eye on a set myself.

    The green is probably a bit Marmite but I wanted a bit of colour on it as so many Ti bikes are monochrome.

    The Cosmics are fine although I've got nothing better to compare them too. They seem to be wearing well and I've had no issue with loose spokes etc. I'd like to try some deeper section rims just to see what they are like but I'm not sure that I'd personally see too much benefit. So no complaints with the Cosmics and they are pretty cheap second hand.
