Probably the most respected and iconic frame from an iconic and most widely respected British frame builder. The catalyst of the birth of some mighty fine models from their contemporary competitors. The epithomy of English steel.

And I knocked 2 teeth out on the first test ride of mine :oops:

Couldn't think of a better frame to loose two teeth for.

Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh at the weekend.
Just a thought on the stem.... Won't a Syncros stem look a bit chunky against the frame? Something in steel like a Salsa would look much better IMO.

Si

I'd agree - Syncros did a steel 1" stem - Veloculture sold one the olther day which I missed by a few pounds or you could have had it :(

Great looking bike Dave - look forward to seeing it for real!

A black ControlStem might work and you could do away with the canti hanger to make it look neater.
