Nearly.

Just need to mount the brakes and run the derailleur cables. The clamp for the FD hits the bottle cage mount though and I need too be it down a bit. Hopefully I can just use the dremel or something to cut that clamp.

If I had a triple crankset it wouldn't be a problem.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

i´m a bit jealous as i was really close to get a nice Merlin frame for almost nothing last year but came late by an hour.
I guess she will be fun to ride.

Don't go triple, just dremel instead! :D
Or get a bigger ring in the front :wink:

Ya, triple isn't an option. Maybe a bigger ring.... I will try to dremel for what I have and see how it turns out. I can't imagine a new clamp would be expensive if I screwed it up.
