i like the look of that, retro futuristic, that said, bearing in mind it's an mtb frame i wonder how it rides, curious how the geometry compares with a normal road frame. also, are the wheels 700c? hard to tell, i assume they are as there is a brake converter on the back so i assume it's a road fork on the front, which then begs the question for me, did they make 700c spins?

That's brilliant. I wonder how it would look with TT bars on it.

Ooh, that's nice......I love the whole 'frankenbike' thing, very individual to look at, and very personal to the rider........nice work!

I would've thought the brake converter was just so they could use calipers, looks like a custom bit to me? Although the fork is intriguing.

Unless Tony has moved to California [you haven't have you Tone?] then I don't think it's actually his bike - simply a post of interest...
