Just built this winter bike...All I need are mudguards and shes ready for the winter.
I cant believe how well it rides, unbelievable to be honest considering it cost just over £425 to build. Obviously it is a little harsh compared to the full carbon bike but I am looking forward to putting this through its paces. It climbs much much better than I expected & feels pretty stiff....well chuffed I tell you!!!

    Haha...I knew someone would notice! I do intend to cut this down eventually, I'm not sure the stem is the correct length so was going to sort it all together. 8)

    No it's not, the skewer is the wrong way not that it matters.

    Mudguard - silver SKS.

    I love these bikes, they ride brilliantly.

    JUst for info, I think they have stopped making them. They were sold on E_Bay but are now like Gold Dust.

    There are some very good extremely lightweight 'guards called 'Crud Racer' which fit on using little brackets that are attached with rubber 'o' ring type thingys. I've got some on my Fixed gear bike and they are brilliant and weigh virtually nothing. If you search hard on ebay you'll find them for about £24. Well worth it.
