Looks good, just needs some sensible pedals!

Always liked those M960 chainsets.

Decided it was in need of sum bling so ordered sum parts...
First of Thomson elite seat pin was removed and sold
Wheels were taken of and the old pro 2 Evo were fitted from the trek.
Also the rotors were removed as these are centre locks.
Crank removed .
Saddle removed again
Bars removed
