Looks absolutely stunning.

Could you give me some info on the powdercoaters - whereabouts are they (Sussex I presume :oops: ) - I'm looking to get my frame done and would rather go by recommendation than take a risk.

We should have a BOTM for parts bin specials. More people should make them, they ride better than posh bikes.

That is one cool looking ride!

Very good people to deal with, not a huge range of colours though.

I guessing the Singlespeed ratios you guys are giving me are for off road?

I've been running 42/17 and I get bored of spinning that after about 5 miles. It's great I can get up all the hills fine. I live in Hastings it's a hilly town but the coastal flats need a bigger gear I'm gonna try 42/15 and push it up the big hills and speed along the sea front!

Thanks to everyone for their comments :D
