After procrastinating too long, finally got the DeKerf finished today. A bit of an eclectic build (read - lash up) with carbon rigids, BB7s, thumbies and amberwalls.

Photo is pre ride while it is still clean but it certainly feels ok going up the road and is pretty light.

That certainly looks the business!
I was thinking ofbuying this frame, but decided, that at 20.5" it would be too big for me, since I'm only 6'1". :shock:

(And welcome to the 21st century!) :D

I'm only 6'2" but seem to 'ride large' if that makes any sort of sense.

I think I'd be really in the 21st century with hydraulic discs, indexed gears and suspension forks but it is a toe in the water I guess.

Anyway, here's the all important wishbone (copied from an On One, I was unreliably informed!).

Nowt wrong with BB7s & thumbies. I'd look at a shorter stem & wider bars first.
Suspension is worth it though.
