Awesome Pim :shock: ,

That's a realy nice bike. You've made some changes at the end? Seat/steerer/hubs?
It looks slim and fast :D

Cheers,
Will

So, that's how the bike should look like with a rigid fork.... 8)

@ will, yep, I changed a couple of parts. First the post, as I didn't like the black with the purple frame colour. Then the handlebar as I didn't like the black bar with silver post. Then the grips.

NOS cd rims are on my merlin now, so went with the Matrix Swami I had laying around. Tires were changed as I feel those lovely umma gumma's shouldn't be on a rider, but should be preserved on show bikes (or bikes that don't get many miles...)

Had a test run today, and the ride is lovely!

Thanks Gus!

I'm really happy with this bike. It's fun to ride rigid again too!
