    not a bad result with the paint at all. Nice work on this bike, it's a real beauty.

    took me over 2 years to restore corky and put it together. I built my own frame in March 2013 and didn't get it built according to my original vision until about May this year and it still will get...

    nice. The Pro 4s will look great, but I agree with another poster. I'd go with some silver or grey fi'zi:k tape.

    agreed. It's a freehub and I am almost positive it is an UG only one, it's clear from the site shot it will only take a threaded lock cog and not a lockring.

    I'm not engineer but I tend to think this is not true. Many of the better stems are now top lock which sort of does what you describe. I think the clamping forces are not even on a single bolt quill...
