Need a pic of the full bike but from what I can see it looks pretty sweet

Those pedals won't be that grippy, best of with something with some proper pins in

Here it is, sans gear cables, brake cable and bar/shifters

Bit of a changearound, Im going to put a flat bar on it, In black, to contrast with the silver.

We will see how it works...

Anyhows, this gives a feel, and I think the forks look ok!

Thanks mate!

It rides really well... Not had chance to ride it proper yet, but it feels spot on, nicely balanced, stiff, and I think the stem/bar is just right

Very happy with it
