As well as a few bikes / bike ride pictures with friends (perhaps worth avoiding), there are almost all of the pics I took on the course here:

That looks very smart Mr Evo :wink:
I like the seat cluster design, as well as the already-mentioned top tube design. Something a bit different. Looking forward to seeing the frame painted mate
Mtb frame next, eh? Lugged would be cool IMO 8) With an extended seat tube.
Hmmmm, maybe I should sign up :idea:

Another great effort. Have you chosen paint yet?

Thanks :) Yes, paint is chosen, but as I left the design with the painter...

Actually, thats not true, I have a copy of the design but I want to get it built then photo it :)

One problem will be trying to get modern bars, stems etc in Silver, not black, so we'll see how that goes.

Good luck finding a set of MTB lugs, I just spent a few hours trying! There is one set but doesn't seem to be very easy to buy.

But yeah, lugged steel would be nice on an MTB.

Heres a few pics of the frame with a bit of paint on. I am going to be assembling it next week I believe.

bryan555 from this very Retrobike parish designed me the logo for which I am eternally grateful. As I don't have the bike here as yet, I'll get some more pics hopefully as I build it.

That looks very cool!
I bet you can't wait to get it built up now and finally swing a leg over it.
I look forward to the first ride report
