It’s built

The 69er is built, however a test ride into town and back nearly deafened me thanks to the ISIS bottom bracket. I need to remove and refit that later to try and quieten it down a bit.

The Shimano chain is also a bit wide thanks to it’s fat side plates and tinkles against the chain guides, it might get swapped for the KMC chain I’ve got spare if I can find it.

I also need to adjust the stem, and fit some new ODI Rogue grips once they arrive at the LBS as the supplied ones are a bit thin. I was lulled into a false sense of security by the lock-on grips on the demo bike I tried.
