I would have to agree, it's a cool project with obviously a lot of time and thought put into it but the frame and fork were built recently by somebody besides Joe which turns me off...no offense. I am impressed with the dedication to complete such a project!!

Is this project any less valid than buying some carbon tubes and getting someone else to build them into a frame? (which involves cutting a perfectly good frame into pieces, and results in a bike that's too fragile to ride)
I know which one gets my respect!

Knew this was coming. Same materials and hands performing the labor. The only difference being time. Pretty large difference (IMO) than taking a bunch of new tubes, throwing them together, and putting a reproduced decal on it.

The Breezer project is what it is - a replica. But does it have a place in BOTM alongside true vintage MTBs?

I can't quite put my finger on it, but this sounds so familiar... was it a Reflex alu/carbon replica or something like that?? Can't recall...

I know Mike already said it, but it's not "some carbon" tubes, we're talking all original materials. Also, the bikes are not too fragile to ride, talk to Rumpfy about his latest air session on his C-26...

Don't fear fact checking, it's your friend.

Sorry for getting off topic
