The fork does indeed not have a crown race spacer its built-in to the carbon - eek
And yes the glue kit provided is to glue the bbright cups and the metal insert into the forks.


No one's mocking you, we're just hoping you can cut and paste the relevant part of the manual here.... you could add some tinsel and stars and stuff as well...

This is why I go into the LBS, hand over the frameset and groupset, and say "Here you go; give me a call when it's ready."

Okay everything is now ready I just need a new set of sealed cables and perhaps a new saddle with matching bar tape, then it will be ready to spend the winter sitting in my living room.

There's no rush this bike isnt leaving the house until the rain has stopped for a period of at least 7 days, so quite possibly never :evil:

Besides I can't make up my mind between 3T or Zipp finishing kit.

Sofa so good :wink:

So you are sticking some bits, and de-stickering other bits?

No rush, the weather looks pretty glue-my out there.
