Welcome! Cool frame, a friend of mine had 3 of them. Why 3? Cause he broke the CNC-ed dropout... Tip: don't jump it, or ride to many stairs...
He still has the last one. Welded a homemade piece of alu into the CNC work. Doesn't look as nice as original, but never broke again!

Thanks Rio,

Don't know if you can see but my steerer tube has had a little repair....developed a small crack so a friend of my dads with plenty of welding experience sorted it for me and she has been sweet since. :!:

Live to ride.......

I hadn't noticed that yet. They are really beautiful frames, but need to be handled with a little bit more care

unless you know a good welder :lol:
