I bought this frame from Gingernuts Badger last week. It's a bit of a retrobike special as the wheels, brakes and forks came from here. Just shifters and a front mech to come, also from on here.

The frame is a small, very small in fact, 13" CtoC on the seat tube and a 20" top tube. But that suits me as I'm only 5'7" with short legs and I wanted something light I could chuck around. Even with my short legs the seat post is 13" from the top of the frame to the top of the saddle. The frame weighs a little more than nothing at all. And the forks from Dickyboy are as light so it should handle nicely as I always worry about light frames as they can get a little nose heavy with front bounce.

It should be up and running sometime soon. Not planning on pretty with this one, just functional and good fun.
