Done a couple of rides on this bike and it very responsive yet comfy too. I made a very good decision having it built :D

I don't really understand that remark. Apart from being thoroughly modern it doesn't offend my delicate road bike sensibilities at all. In fact I rather like it.

I had to put a lot of overtime and man hours in to pay for this bike :roll:

Its the first brand new complete bike ive bought since 1992 :!:

Worth the wait though its really nice to ride.

Thanks Mark, i work in a road environment and the majority of my colleagues go for the carbon packages with no soul. Thought as i was doing the whole custom bike build id do it a little different :wink:

And the best part is it rides like it as nitros kit fitted..very modern handling!

i've just seen this bike in the flesh - it's a beauty as are the other creative metalworks bikes i saw at the shop.

Out of interest, hope i'm not being too cheeky but how much did the frame build cost?

thanks

J
