Just brilliant - this bike is superb! 600 & Flite looks the business.

And as for 9 groupsets from the attic :shock:

Love the quirkiness of this!

Can't help but think that bar end shifters would suit it better than STI's.

Silver crank definitely matches better than black. Looking forward to seeing this progress.

Might try the bar end shifters at some point in time, but this is a bit easier to setup.

I like that. Somehow shouts "early 90's elevated stay MTB" at me :wink:

What does the wheelbase measure out at? It looks quite short.

Will you use it for it's intended purpose?
