Looks real nice! 8) It’s funny how you can romp ahead and get loads done and then stall. I’m at the stall at the mo. :( Well done! worth the wait! What’s the plan for it now?

just looking at your bike, very nice indeed.
just a minor point, that seatpost binder and the pedals would look far nicer on a pace rc100 :wink:
seriously though, very nice bike.
