I thought that was a disc brake on the back :) I like it - rock ring isn't that heavy

mine is both sitting in my hallway and laying scattered about my desk at work at the same time, I was going to build it on saturday but now I am going to be trawling scrappy's for yet another wildly overpriced touran part. (plastic accelerator pedal broke in 2 £85 for a new one as it has electrics in it (I don't need those bits but they won't sell the plastic parts seperately) :( )

I need to do some work to the frame before I can assemble it, and I'm on a week off work and plan to do it in the workshop there as I have more space and most of my tools are there. Once the frames finished I'll knock it together in no time.

Got the wheels together and onto the frame :) Not looking as bad as I thought it would with the 1.5 conti's I think the 3.8 series frame must have slightly thinner tubes than most ally bikes. Have a slightly shaky front hub which will need attention , after that drive train and brakes and I'm good to go. Hopefully done in the next few days :D
