Photos taken from my phone in a not terribly well lit garage while shivering a bit. This statement should preempt any complaints about picture quality. It's not my garage either, but my mate Matt had made a real effort to tidy it up. First time I've ever actually seen the bench. I just assumed tools had been thrown into a corner and piled up to bench height
Right take that box of bits and fit them to the frame. Shouldn't take long.
Didn't had the right size headset press. Did have a hammer. Tight interference fit. Hope the neighbours weren't trying to watch the TV or anything.
Had to borrow Matt's wheel as mine haven't turned up yet. Attempt to sort chain line was interrupted by realisation that BB threads were in need of chasing out. LBS borrow tomorrow to sort.
BooBar! £30 off CRC, 780mm, sort of a matching colour.
Which is more than can be said of that stem. Those forks are second hand and clearly the steerer tube was hacked off with a butter knife. I felt quite upset until we sorted that.
Still BOS forks at 170mm should be perfect for the Mega. Can't wait to get them out on the trail. Will probably wait for the wheels to arrive first!
Forgot the cable guides, so couldn't shorten the hoses.
Adequately stout back end. Put Matt's 2.4 tyre in there and not too much clearance tho.
Brakes, Shifter, Stealth reverb fitted (easy, great system), steerer tube cut straight.
Wheels should come tomorrow. Will sort BB threads and see if we can get it all done tomorrow night. Because the weekend is for riding
