this has been a backburner thing for me for quite a while, a couple of people knew i was planning it and i told a couple of people it was turning up but i didn't expect it this morning!!
i'd always wanted to build an "anti roadbike" and what i mean by that is building a perfectly usable road bike but in a mountain bike style with traditionally mtb components! for no other reason than "i can"
so a while back i built my LIME Crosswork, a cross bike version of the orange clockwork so then later i came up with the idea of the LEMON ROADWORK!!! i thought this would be perfect for an mtb style build!
i waited for a frame to turn up on ebay or wherever but there seemed to be nothing till i dropped into my local shop cyclexperience in hythe, a shop i used to run, mark the current manager let me have the frame for £40! mainly coz it had a slight dink in the tope tube (which you'll notice on one of the stickers) and some damage to the inside of the seat tube, nothing that was a problem though as i knew this was gonna be a winter orientated bike i wasn't fussed about the dink and the seatube just needed a good reaming out!
cut to a year later and the frame had been sent to bob jackson for its new paint scheme!! also in the mean time i've been collecting bits for the build.
then this morning a box turned up!!
here are the pics!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
