A christmas present for the missus - plan was to invite her over today and get her to build a bike as she doesn't know how to and wants to get more involved.

I said that I'd get her a bike next year - and that she can help build the one that i've had in bits for the last month - plan is to have her turn up and say "Happy Christmas" as she see's this!!

I almost feel bad at letting it go - it's nicer than my Vegan Burner!!

You can get them on eBay dude - Yaban chains - for a more authentic old school (more pricier) try an Izumi chain
