Few updated pics, not the greatest though. I'll get some better ones when the sun come out.

Spec:

Frame: Vicious Cycles Metal Guru
Fork: Salsa Cro Moto
Headset: Token ceramic
Bars: Groovy Luv Handles
Stem: Thomson
Post: Thomson
Saddle: Charge Spoon
Collar: Salsa
Cranks: White Industries ENO
Pedals: Cranks Brothers smartys
Tensioner: NC-17
Rims: Salsa Delgado
Hubs: Ringle front/ Paul rear/Shimano freewheel
Tyres: Spesh Enduro
Brakes: Avid arch rival/levers


Tyres are next to get changed and I have a full set of Pauls brakes now doing nothing, these might go on. Need new pedals too.

The ride is sublime, even though I wasn't 100% on the looks (tall seat tube for a short top tube) the ride more than makes up for it. Has edged out the Kona as my favourite singlespeed, more chuckable and fun. Has built up what feels fairly light for a steel frame fork and bars set up.
