Hi David,
I have more question if you don't mind.
I see that the original RD cable was routed through chainstay. However, in your later images, the cable seems to be external. What is the part/component you use for that? I have issue re-install new cable internally on my 560

With the internal cable routing, I found the bend with the housing too sharp for the location of the 6800 RD cable stop. I used a rivet on cable stop from nova cycles website.

Looks very nice!!.
If I may ask, did you polished the crank yourself? Can you enlighten me how?

I use a palm sander with 150 grit. Then hand sand and elbow grease the rest of the way. 220 grit paper. 00 steel wool. 000 steel wool. Mother's aluminum and mag polish. It's a grind, but the satisfaction is worth the time. 2-4 hours depending on how clean you want it. Cranksets are the most time consuming. Same process for handlebars or stems or whatever you wanna polish.

Good luck!
