Hey neil,
What did you do with the original seat that was on your bike on JJ's blog? While he was building mine, I looked over pics of your, and thought of getting a set of them fenders. But some how it got lost in the comms, so maybe later (unless I will be able to build some myself).

@saltyman
saw your ad on mtbr for a used Spaceframe. so did you find 1, or are you getting 1 from JJ?
for the setup: hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
I figured I let Jeff set it up as he thinks best, after all, he knows the his bikes best. As long as its not welded, you can change it later.

yeah, truss fork is a must.

been offered a decent deal from the USA £3,900 for a complete bike, bar wheels/brakes.

UK one im talking too is more cash but almost rideable.

Hi mbkot, the Jones Blog pictures of my bike show his own saddle and post, I bought a complete bike except the seat/post. He just fitted them for the pics. The guards would be too flexy and rub the tyres without the stiffening brackets Jeff made, very precisely made and well worth it.
