thanks!

fork will be the Seven mid reach fork. When Mike Z and i started the conversation about this bike, the Whiskey fork was not even a thing yet. fork will be unpainted gloss clear.

yes, mid-cage Potenza RD, record shifters, WI crank.

cages are so nice, it will be hard to jam bottles into them, but i'll get over that!

Can't believe I almost missed this. Excited to see it come together. Mulling a deposit of my own to bring a Zank back into the fold. Or perhaps better stated, bring me back into the fold :-)

Unpainted forks are the new painted forks. Love the look. I've also always really loved the Seven forks

coming together.

pics below with some carbon tubies, and of course, the purple hub'd everyday wheels.

still need to get a fork situation straightened out, and i'm still not perfectly healthy, but hoping for at least a quick spin this weekend to test out the fit. i think i'm going to need a slightly longer stem, and may go down a spacer on the front. a ride will tell.

Great, no-nonsense bike. Well done!

You've gotta find you one of these to bomb through while someone snaps some pics.
