    Build done - Thanks BF!

    Thought I'd just post a pic of my Bob Jackson World Tour frame build - 631 Reynolds steel, just finished.

    I'd built up my 1985 Miyata 100 with all the components a year and a half ago in anticipation of the new frame.
    For a number of reasons it took longer to get round to ordering. I'd looked into a custom frame from Mercian, but in the end went for an off-the-peg Bob Jackson. Big difference in price.

    The rest of the bike is nothing earth shattering: Mavic A719 rims, XT hubs, LX trekking crankset and derailleurs, DA barcons, Avid SD7 V-brakes with Tektro RL520 levers, MKS GR9 pedals, Tubus Logo rack, Aliante Life saddle, GatorHardshell 28 tires. Workhorse stuff I guess.

    More to the point a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone on BF. I've learnt so much from reading, sometimes asking questions and always receiving invaluable and helpful advice. You da BEST!!!!

    First big trip's going to be from mid january around the S.Island of New Zealand and a jaunt either north from Bangkok up through N.Thailand and Laos or south to the thai islands - I'll decide that one at the crossroads in Bangkok

    I'll post a "fully loaded" pic in the sticky later on.

    So, how does it ride? Do you find the MKS GR9 pedals smooth?
