    3 cats = no tree for me :)

    Some very nice upgrade though! Do you have to wait until the 25th to ride it? :D

    More like 20 ;)
    Looks a nice build. You do it yourself?
  • yeah had some bits left over from my carbon giant build (must get some pictures up) and snafued the frame on the bay :-) ,hardest part was tuning the rear derailleur ,eventually found the easiest way was to do it by ear :-). really nice drive that does'nt immediatly catch the eye but feels really classy .

    9 cats, no problems.........just need to be taught who is boss!

    Some nice looking bits there.

    I have a new carbon seat post (old one delaminating where the clamp had allowed it to move in the frame, will be cut down for the commuter) and a KCNC lightweight clamp coming........
  • Is it wrong to want these too ?

    pretty sure the kids will be cycling far in front or behind when i get that bad boy :-0:-)

    No, it's a great idea. Make sure you have a full face and body armour on, you'll look uber cool. Stick some pgotos up on here as well.

  • There you go :-)
