Should finally get out for a ride tomorrow :) still waiting for tyres and chainset to arrive although I do quite like the LX on it and it will do for now :wink:

I think I'm happy with how it looks although a few things will probably change :? but I'm very happy with how little it weighs :)

Sorry for the crappy pics but it seems to be permanently dark at the moment :?

p.s the back wheel is only in loosely so no slack chain comments :lol:

Yup...my Guyzer build was lighter than the Hei Hei...admitedly with slightly heavier wheels...but it does build up really light. Looking good apart from the cranks :wink: :lol:

God I sound so condescending there, sorry lad. It's a gorgeous frame and so far well built, bar the LX cranks - try and get some Middleburns if you can (just an idea). Can't wait to see it built up fully, it looks like it's going to be quite a nimble bike that one.

Leave the LX cranks alone :lol: don't worry ENO cranks are on their way :wink: I'm just impatient and wanted to ride it :lol:

I annoy everyone with my Moby posts :oops: I know its the wrong way around but it keeps the threaded bolt out of the way of spray, so I've always done it :wink:

I'm still undecided whether to put a disc on the front :?: I've got a Hope front wheel which would go really nicely but I've got a bit of a thing about non matching wheels :?

Keep it simple!

Mismatched brakes never look good to me. It looks almost spot on as is.

Like a great artist, know when to stop meddling! :wink:

Cheers,Al. :D
