    Awesome job there. Triple points if you manged to save and reuse the chain, I reckon.

    All is well, the spacer was there, hidden on the DS ´under´ the granny ring. Phew. We´re good to go!

    Ah. What does this spacer look like? I fear I might have lost it, or not received it.... Bugger!

    Velocivixen, just throw a few photos together with an entertaining paragraph or two about the build and enter.

    It's all about the taking part, and yours sounds like a cool build. I'd love to hear...

    Likewise, I went...
