Project Scandal: finishing touches
#1
Morning All

Payday has finally arrived again so I can get the last couple of bits and pieces for my HT build  ;D  I have most components so I only need to get a headset, grips, gear cables and a square taper BB.  I was going to go for either a tried and trusted XTR cable set or if I pass a Halfords maybe the Clarkes set that Tinc suggested on another thread, a box standard Shimano BB and see what the lbs has as far as grips go.

As far as the headset goes I'm looking at around £20-25 and have been looking at this <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=28122">http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=28122</a><!-- m -->

I had also thought about another FSA Orbit or a Cane Creek S3.

Any thoughts appreciated as always  Smile

Cable : Go for Tincs suggestions : Clarks Premium Gear Cable Set  -£8.99  (I bought a set yesterday)

Grips : SuperStar Components Lock-on Grips - About £9 - Total bargain! lots of colours.

I'd looked at the Superstar grips only last night along with the seat clamps.  Then its just a matter of deciding on the colour which will kick my procrastination process in overdrive  :o

Was just about to suggest SS, having noticed they now do custom colour setups for £10, but you're already on it.
Here's a link anyhoo; http://superstar.tibolts.co.uk/product_i...cts_id=325
Got the black SupaGripa setup on my Trek & love em mate!

Headset wise, I've always loved CaneCreek's mate, never had a single issue with my last bike's cane creek over 3 years & 3500 miles.

Is this a ScandAL -Scandium Alluminium- framed beastie? maybe even the 29"er version I've read good bits about?

It is indeed a ScandAL but just the standard 26".  Very much looking forward to getting it up and running as the frame has been sat in a box for weeks now.

I found a Ritchey WCS Logic headset on t'bay for £12 which seems a bargain price but cant find any reviews for one.  Any thoughts  Undecided
