Beautiful, stunning etc, any words I post would still fall short of doing it justice.
A very deserving winner of any class.
Glad to see the velodrome is still open after the hassle of a couple of years ago.
Now for the ride report :wink:

No more words to add as Im lost for them, to think you actually made this is incredible its off the scale for me, Im a detail freak but this is stratospheric! the polished seat cluster......do you sell framed prints? Well done, Im off to bed now in the UK with a big smile on my face!

Wow! I love the little details such as the rear brake cable emerging from the seat lug and the cable sheath mount for the RD on the chainstay. Wonderful, wonderful build...
