Yeah, but I upgraded to a 'stick' when I burst my space hopper trying to drill it to make it lighter. Maybe I should have just filled it with helium instead?

I've gone for the green approach and designed a frame made entirely from re cycled bog roll the chainset is cardboard and the bars are kitchen roll tubes with grips made from more bog roll.
Raleigh are interested in buying the rights to manufacture it !
Another quality frame !
