Black as well. Black saddle to come also. Its surprisingly non-bumblebee for a bumblebee.
Thanks, btw - looking forward to giving it a run on saturday.

If you still need a seat post bolt, head in to Gear, I was just in there today and got one for the Raleigh. They have loads.

Hey Ben, I was about to say I've still got yours :) I'll pop it in the car for next time I see you.
I actually ordered one through the intierowebses as every store I went to didn't have them short enough - if that fails I'll talk to Eric on saturday.

I couldn't articulate why I liked the yellow and black when normally I don't, but you've nailed it there...

There's a real bronze/gold sheen to it actually, where the yellow has faded with age.

10.5kg.

Took it on an easy 13km commute this morning to rough out any issues.
I need to adjust low gear derailluer setting (I know, i just tried out the high chainring), and close up the front brake a touch but otherwise its really nice.

Probably should've ordered an 11-23 cassette instead of the 12-25 I did, but that's perhaps because I'm used to the resistance of the single speed. Didn't top out down Mina Parade so perhaps its okay.

Riding retro steel with modern components is the absolute best funtime you can have with your clothes on IMO.

After finishing my first build... a Carbon Campy, with this inspiration, next will be a retro steel with Campy goodies for sure. Lovely bike

Hey, thanks! I really like the new drivetrain/old steel thing - feels like a new bike - actually better, since I know everything is properly tightened and adjusted ;)

Yep, the bike that you assemble yourself with care, and tune in to suit you is the sweetest ride of all. Total confidence!

I think I need to de-campy the wheels - stickers just aren't my thing. And does anyone know how to shut that ratchet up?

Also, lucky I didn't go for 28s - otherwise I'd have to deflate the tyre each time to get it past the derailleur clamp.

mate i'd say that would be a mid to late 80s viner. 70s steel wouldn't have had recessed brake holes yet.

I defer to the man in the know. I was working (in a wholly uneducated fashion, mind) off the cable stays on the bottom bracket.
