Getting to the nitty gritty, took som ebolts out an yay has the desired effect, to replace 4 bolts and 2 nuts with Ti would cost £14 :? probably save 10g :shock:

Right, so I eventually finished work at 11pm and decided to have a quick wipe of the frame with degreaser and once I'd done that a quick rub with wire wool (sorry Rob). I think it would take time I don't have to get it ready to polish, and as Rob points out welds only a mother could love.

I'm just a bit baffled how you keep you feet on those pedals Mikee?

Cowboy boots?

I'd better get a bloody move on I think.

However I did decide to weigh the frame pre-paint. Though I think the paint will add a fair bit if I put on as many layers as I plan to.
