Finally, the snow has thawed enough to be rideable, and I thought I'd risk getting this beauty dirty. Needn't have worried ; she's so quick, dirt don't stick!
An absolutely beautiful ride! Despite being the biggest bike I've ever owned (24"tt, 21" c-t), she seems as nimble as my old, too small Dekerf, but I've more room to move around so climbing is way better.
The build isn't finalised, but stealthy black seems OK, and I'm on the lookout for some flat bars (anyone?) to turn her into a race machine.
She needs to lose a few pounds too; she's just under 26lbs as is. :shock:

Ta!
Two things surprised me about the frame- the weight (2.15kg) and the thickness of the paint. The seat tube is 30mm dia. at the mech clamp, and I think most of that is paint. All the tubes are internally sealed too, so it's built to last! :D

One year on, the final iteration of the finest bike I've ever ridden. You agree , Craig? She needs a Plowboy for company!

Frame and forks having a family reunion of cousins once removed. THanks Andy!

That just leaves the Ginger headed stepchild cranks. Anyone?
