picture updates :D Tom has just sent me some pics of the drop outs being machined, they were done a while ago but i think the pictures are cool 8) 8)

the first pic (if in the right order!) is the test piece being machined out of mdf to make sure the program is correct, the second is the actual drop outs

just been to see Tom to discuss some details regarding the cable stops etc. the frame is now almost done, just needs a seatstay bridge and the cable guides and some cleaning up then it'll be off to the finishers.

i am in morzine till the 29th then straight to wales after that then back to work so i still won't get it for a while even if it is finished even though having seen it today i am desperate to build and ride it!!

here's a picture from a few weeks ago, i thought i posted it before but maybe not.

I'm liking the look of that. What kind of riding are you planning to do on it?
