Without wanting to sound negative...
That thing is the fugliest mishmash of styles I've seen for a long while. It's gimmicky. Not only does it look a mess, but the position is all wrong for an audax bike. An in-line seatpost with a Brooks saddle puts the rider way too far forward with that seat tube angle.
Fair enough and I'm inclined to agree to a degree. There are aspects of the bike that I really like but the seat position really lets it down imho. Also agree with Mark about the guards, I do like the way they cut across the wheel slightly but I think some custom jobbies would have been much better. Made from titanium would have just been ace
Oh btw it's not a seatpost is the seat tube extending up and cut to size like some of the new carbon stuff.
Tel: I understand that you want people to see your products, but do you really think this is the place for it?
Oh...well I thought it would be of interest seeing a modern retro build. Plus I consider the people on here to be my community so wanted to share my news....it seems to have sparked a bit of conversation but I apologise if.....
....actually I'm not sure what I am apologising for or whether one is even due
I guess I consider old steel bikes a little like old cars:
Original - for the connoisseurs
Custom - for the creative
Modern take for the practical romanticist
Modern custom for the creative romanticist
Something like that anyway
That reply took ages! Looking through pics of cars....
