    I ran out of time to do it “right” so robbed wheels off another bike to get it going for the EWS. Turned out not bad…

    Cheers chaps, it’s actually re-anodised by Steve the Anodiser, turned out lovely- it flipflops a bit, goes almost candy apple red in low light or really bright in direct sun, not what I’d planned but it’s cool. I’ll do a proper attention whore thread once its got its plastic wheels in.

    So, Northwind, you are a Cotic fan then?

    (I may well be looking for justification / reason why my agonising through an 8 week wait is worth it 🙂 )

    Judging by the STW collectives usual reaction to you / a bike. Is this one a keeper then?

    Is that Steve the Anodiser from Berks/Surrey way? If it is (and how many Steve the Anodisers are there) not seen him around for years.

    Yeah, I’m basically married to this one… Though, the others have all moved on now, just sold my Soda to fund this refurb.

    @Hora – it was £130 including return post, though I think that included my hubs too. So it’s pretty competitive with powdercoat, fast turnabout too. The finish has no coverage obviously so if the frame’s marked or damaged you’ll still see it- this one had a mark on the headtube frinstance, that’s why the headbadge is so huge! Oh, it seems to shed mud well too. Really pleased.

    I’m waiting on a 26″ 65mm wide carbom rim for my half fat bike. Should be around 350/400g lighter than my current rim 🙂 and a LB 29er 35mm rim for the back, which will save another 270g.

    Don’t worry Chiefgrooveguru, if I put the long rocker in it, it goes right back to looking like a crane.

    Gosh was it only a week ago since my ” I’m still waiting for my TCX Advance1 SRAM brake recall”? Whine ?

    Well here’s another, I’m still waiting.

    Bloody “were shipping them out horseshite” publicity stunt, that’s what it is.

    And no, Giant asked me to take the bike in for the refit because they said they were ready for it, took off the brakes to send back to SRAM so they can swap them 1:1 🙄

    Did you get the Radon from Bike-Discount.de ?

    Don’t worry Chiefgrooveguru, if I put the long rocker in it, it goes right back to looking like a crane.

    I just googled that…

    Can’t believe how much better yours looks than it did in white though!

    Nothing now this has turned up!
