    Looks well lush that does. Pop yourself over to Edwyn's and have a rummage through his boxes. Last time I was there I got myself a hand whisk and five of them Rambo knives from the eighties.

    Wheels were moved onto the single speeder but I have another Spinergy to on the back (will move the front between the two bikes) but just need to rebond carbon spoke onto hub (oooh - at least ten mins do that). Or fit HED rear disc to s/s and move Spinergys back to Dirk. Pop 80mm carbon front onto s/s to match HED.

    Also just got to sort out front brake alignment on the Campy brakes that are on it, but have another set of Chorus (later models) that I could bolt straight on. Will probably just drop it down to shop for that as time is short.

    So yes. And no. Sort of. Deffo the next thing to get 100% done though - by end of August latest.

    Bizarrely enough, it needs a respray (going exactly the same colours) and Edwyn has the matching paint - he found a load of brushes in the outside lavvie so he said he'll do it for me one night.

    Will post piccie of it up - the Mavic headset is seriously sweet.

    Re knives - I understand that Rambo calls them "Edwyn knives" so he does.
