lingus and roger- loving your clockworks, those front forks remind me of my original 1990 clockworks forks- man did they flex on the rocky stuff, if it wasn't for the fact I was bouncying about like a rag doll trying to hang on I would have been a bit concerned- mind you, yours are both still here in one piece so tells you all you need to know :wink:

Man this is the best thread 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Now that's a tasty looking bike. When they're good, those nickle plated frames do look the business. 8)
I remember drooling over a P7 just like that one in a bike shop in Redcar in about 1995.

forgot to add the O when i got it finished so here it is in all her glory! :D

very mixed on the spec, to be used as a commuter so the theme was simplistic reliability hence shimano and nothing to bling. got an original fork for it the other day though so when i find a good headset and 1 1/4 stem i'll consider another (read better!) revamp in a more original style. but for the moment i'm really happy with the results! :D thanks to scant for the frame and boy o boy for stickers! :D

After a bit of a rough start my E3 is up and running, built as a
1x8 for now due to the cable stop issue, running a 32 ring with a
12-23 road cassette but may try 36 and an 11-28 but seems fine
as it is (ran these gears on my Clockwork anyway and the E3 is
way lighter 8) )

Stickers are'nt 100% correct but i'm not keen on the original
design anyway.

Rides fantastic though, very quick, light and responsive 8)

hey kaiser, the tyres are maxxis crossmarks, they roll well on the road and are chunky enough to take the harshness out of the stiff rear end, i put them on coz i can commute offroad most of the way to work if i want to so slicks would have been a bad choice.

jimi, nice weapon you have there, love the cranks 8)
