Whilst most bored I put some bits on it from my other 1998 floval, just so I could ride it on xmas day, to no avail!
fell foul of the integrated lower internal fork crown doofer thing...
that put paid to riding it on xmas morning

so £103 quid, so far

* IMG_20180108_201014.jpg (1876.79 kB. 2560x1920 - viewed 5 times.)

2015 floval - in my coulours black and silver
renthal cruiser bars
odi grips
proper stem
gusset headset
carbon spacers
cliq or s n m tapered race forks
avid brakes
alienation deviant front rim with profile elite hub
alienation runway rear with profile elite hub
box chain tugs
gold hollow pin chain
kenda conversion tyres
redline magnesium pedals
had the crnaks and ring seat and gold post

all I need now is for the frame to do a bit better, and get £100ish for 2 chainrings, a profile rear sprocket, the white éclat seat, the 27.2mm fireye seat post and the seat clamp

not tea bag........
certainly better spec than the 2005 floval  explosion I had stolen in august

Actually those Spyders are surprisingly comfortable! I recently picked one up for my Crupi, with the intention of using it for races only, but will probably run with it permanently.
