Both the last two are ace, but I think I want the Laiti myself more.

Cannondale lefty? Pah! Only half a job!!

I'd love to build one up with real tarty parts and make a real head turner.

Allsop stem would be a great start.

This is what I LOVE about this site!

That bike has the rear mech in the wrong place, the head angle looks a bit weird, the rear cassette is ready to EAT ANYONE who tries to ride past too close, the kit on it is PANTS but the bike as a whole look so chuffin' cool I have developed a huge passion for it instantly!

What are your plans for it?
