Looks good. also looks as if Mr Cottingham got carried away with his drill in a few places!

My lo-pro is in for a refurb at the moment so we might have a pair soon :wink:

We should start a 'mad lo pro' thread. They are horribly uncomfortable to ride though. Or is it me? I just can't resist the mad look of them though.

Definately you as a proper low pro is one with a 24" front wheel :) of which I have two :)

Those MAVIC Rear Mech's were pretty awful as I had one explode on me during a 25.

Good luck with the build & needs more stuff to be drilled out.

I can only apologise that it's not a 'proper' low profile and it's got an awful rear mech..... must try harder!

I happen to like it! :D
