Nice and unusual, always good to be different. What's your plan?

:D :D Perhaps a shopper will be the next build for the plastic fantastic. With a 20 inch wheel there would be space for a box on the chain stay. Cheers for the idea.

Built pic, have since shortened the rear brake cable and housing. The matching front wheel needs new bearings and repacking so I am currently running another. I will also transfer my campagnolo pedals over from my Vitus.

Yes like my other four bikes single speed. I was fortunate that my preferred 42*16 was a magic gear. It is not really possible to run higher on any daily commuter in this windy city. Will try get a drive side up once I get an outside picture. I have been enjoying this frame although I have felt some of the crosswinds around the bays a wee bit more than a standard frame.
