Thanks,
It rides well very fast handling I just feel I need to move the saddle back a little
Probably taking her out tonight with the lads on one of our night rides.
The Pauls brake hanger works a treat too

That's a lovely looking bike, but that rear brake hanger makes me feel angry!! Surely there's a better way of doing it - it looks awful!

Otherwise its pretty sweet!

I agree but it works really well
I am going to get a new lower arm made which will provide a better line

Hurray! The Cdn Geese finally arrived to you. I have to admit those cranks look really good on your all black blizzard. Much better than on my Cirrus. Almost regret giving them up to you! ;)

I agree with Rob, you need to address that rear hanger, or go with Vs. Guess you didn't buy a large enough diameter Paul hanger clamp size that you can machine larger and clamp to the seat tube instead of the seat post?
