Tried to sell this frame last year with no success and got fed up of falling over it in the shed.

So a quick raid of the spares + a new saddle and chain and it lives !

I'm quite pleased how it's turned out.

Looks sharp!

Don't know if I could go back to v-brakes at my 230 lbs. :shock:

I'm nearly same weight.

I find the Avid Arch rivals on the front pretty good actually. Surprised how effective they are.
