    Sunday on a Saturday (but is the BB right??)

    Finally got my new Sunday Team today!!!!!!!! It looks even better in the flesh!!!! The bike arrived with a spec identical to the website so I'm well happy!!!!!!! Can't wait to try out those el caminos!!!!!!! Only ridden it around on the road outside but feels fantastic!!!!! One thing that is worrying me though is where the crank on the left side of the bike meets the bottom bracket!!! It looks like there is some sort of threaded cap missing as I can see the thread and some orange thing inside the BB....... I'll post a pic!!!! Is this right????? Would appreciate any input!!!!! Thanks....

    Good job!

    No problem w/ the BB. There is not supposed to be a lockring and you are just seeing the bearing seal.

    Beautiful bike

    yeah my 7point BB looks exactly the same.
    make sure you get something on that swingarm to protect it. the cable rub will destroy your paint.

    Nice ride!

    I am curious to know where you are located and when you placed the order for your frame?

    I am hoping my Sunday shows up soon.

    I live 30 minutes north of Tokyo. I placed the order at my LBS way back in September (the end of September I think).... My friend works at the bike shop and we go riding together....He's good friends with the Japanese distributors so he requested a 19" frame for me (the Japanese distributors were only going to import 17" frames at first)....... It arrived on Friday, but I was told it was flown to Japan as it missed the boat!!!!!!!!????!!!!!!!!.... The season starts on the 22nd April here in Japan (will be my first season of racing) so it has arrived in plenty of time!!! I have to sort out my registraton now.....In JAPANESE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhh!!!!!!!
    Hope you get yours soon!!! You won't be dissapointed!!!!
