Who is this man you call Jose? I like the look of his work!

Just finished building the front wheel, so I'll be able to start assembly shortly. The last couple of parts are going to be new and a little expensive, so it won't be finished until after Christmas.

Still, that's for another thread, back to your Sonic, when's it due to be painted?

I think i'm at the back of the queue in the christmas rush :lol:
He has 7 frames to build, none of them are straight forward, basic designs.
He's going to try to fit mine in between the other better paying jobs as i have negotiated a nice price 8)
I think i'll see it mid january :D

That's a lot quicker than my DB, which took seven months to come home, complete with a new top tube and the paint.

Mine would have been done 2 weeks ago if i had bitten the bullet and gone for orange straight away :roll: I am glad i had a good think about it though.
I need a black 22.2 quill stem if anybody has one spare :D
Initially i got a NOS Tricolour stem, silver bars and post, but i've since bought carbon bars and i already had a carbon post so i'm now thinking black post, bars and stem?
Having looked at as many orange framed bikes as i could find over the last 2 weeks i think i need to use as much black as possible to make the frame standout 8)

What diameter are the bars?

I've still got the stem I PM'ed, or possibly e-mailed you the picture of.
