I'm building a bike from a load of old parts, a few second hand bits and a couple of new bits too, for getting to school on, general getting around, and a bit of xc. It'll be lighter than my other bike, and a lot less likely to get stolen too, so i'll be happier leaving it locked up.

Stuff has arrived!
