This project has taken a little longer than originally expected, And I put more money into it than I first though.....maybe I should have put the money into my Intense Tazer...but this will be used more, so pfffft.

I got this frame from Colin (bhill22) as Karma :)
Apparently its just an old alloy frame with Cannondale stickers, But no matter what it is, I adore it now......Cant believe I used to *love* my apollo XC26 for A-to-B's :roll:

I had a few niggly problems along the way with regards to chain line and tension, but I now have it sorted with a donated fixed tensioner. :)

On with the pics!...........

Finally finished tonight ready for a ride to tomorrows skyride :)

Weight crept up and up....I aimed sub 20, arrived at 21.6....I could shave it down still with a few changes. But I dont know if I will.

Parts list may follow if anybodys intrested.
Also, I would appreciate it if you guys would give me a valuation at the xyz thread:

Looks fun. You're right though it ain't no Cannondale. Not with those welds.
