Awesome bikes, only thing that stopped me buying the grown up version was the weight and the rear hose routing. This one a keeper Mark?


As you know I seem completely unable to do lightweight so don't mind the additional weight!

Rear brake hose routing is a bugger. The same brake that fitted my 21'' Inbred was way to short for this frame. New hose needed! :lol:

A keeper .... we'll see :wink:

Heard about your new project at the weekend :wink:

Great bike, just looks right :D

Graphics on the black are very stealth.

Don't see many of these about which is a surprise as I would have thought they'd be very popular, not a bad thing though.

Well the brake is bled ..... Sort of :oops:

Had a quick pootle ..... Proper ride tomorrow.

First thoughts - when moving its difficult to tell that it's an Alfine hub over regular gearing but will see how that pans out tomorrow.

The revelation is being able to change gear without spinning the pedals i.e. stationary. Far from me eing the best track stander I can see this having a benefit.

For those interested full ride report tomorrow .....
